JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Oct. 18, 2014) – The ETSU football team spent time off the gridiron this week and gave back to the community as the Buccaneers visited Grandview Elementary to help with their annual “Eagle Walk” on Wednesday, while also making the trip to the Appalachian Fairground to help set up for the “Color Me Rad” 5K on Friday.
The “Eagle Walk,” which is an annual fundraiser to help with the Grandview Elementary Reading Enrichment program, saw the ETSU football players help instruct with several passing and kicking stations, while the Buccaneer student-athletes also spoke to the children about the importance of education.
On Friday, a group of players went to the Appalachian Fairgrounds to help set up for the “Color Me Rad” 5K. The Buccaneers were busy unloading trucks and putting together signage for the race, while also helping stake in inflatables at the start/finish lines. The Johnson City “Color Me Rad” 5K has teamed up to donate proceeds to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
The ETSU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics takes pride in its community service activities and strives for 100 percent participation from its student-athletes, coaches and administrators throughout the year.
