On Monday November 29, 2017, the Wesleyan athletic program took on a huge challenge to complete a community-wide service event. Each Wesleyan athletic team took a local elementary school as their place of service.

The football team went to West Louisville Elementary School in three different sessions, and I think the players enjoyed it more than the elementary students did. “This is amazing to me,” safety James Todd commented. “It’s like the kids look up to us and we inspire them, but honestly the kids inspire me. There’s nothing like being able to make a kid smile, laugh and enjoy life. A lot of kids around the world go through tough times, so to be able to spend time with kids and make them smile is just a beautiful sight.” Todd instructed kids on how to complete sports workouts.

Sophomore tight end Trey Waltimire also told me about his visit. “That was really cool, for some reason from the time I stepped in the building I couldn’t stop smiling and laughing. It made me feel like a kid again, but for a different purpose. It made me feel like a kid because I was trying to be a good friend to my little friends, and make sure they have fun time.”
