Lady Raiders Volunteer at Fit4Fun Kid's Triathlon
July 18, 2010
LUBBOCK, Texas - The Texas Tech women's basketball team spent its Saturday morning volunteering at Texas Tech's 2010 Fit4Fun Kid's Triathlon at the Student Recreation Center on campus.
The event was held for kids ages 7-14 years old and began with a swim at the Texas Tech Leisure Pool, then transitioned to a bike ride and ended with a run around the Texas Tech campus.
"Our team had a lot of fun spending time with the kids during the triathlon," said head coach Kristy Curry. "Developing good habits towards fitness are important at a young age. Being fit has such an impact on our health. Our health really is our first wealth."
The Lady Raiders were on hand to meet the participants as they arrived. They then cheered on the kids during their races and handed out medals to all the kids who participated. At the end, Curry spoke to the children and their families, while the team helped with the door prizes.
Community service is a big part of the Lady Raider basketball program and this is one of several events that the team volunteers its time to throughout the year.
