Denver Women’s Golf Team Gives Back to the Community

The University of Denver women’s golf team visited the Children’s Hospital of Aurora last week going room to room to meet the youth patients and spend some time getting to know them. The Pioneers enjoyed constructing crafts and meeting the children. The student-athletes and coaches know the importance of community serving and the kids enjoyed their company while taking photos with the team.
 “We as a team love the opportunity to serve and we were inspired by the kids and their courage and positive attitudes,” said associate head coach Erik Billinger.

The Pioneers also understand the importance of education with the youth, volunteering with Reading Partners, a nonprofit organization. A simple act like reading to a child can mean the world to the kids and in turn have an impact on the student-athletes. Last Friday, the team volunteered through Reading Partners, a nonprofit and traveled to the Garden Place Academy, just off Lincoln Street, to read to several third and fourth grade students.
