Macon, GA - The Wesleyan College tennis team was recognized this week by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association as one of four regional winners of its Division III Community Service Award. The Wolves earned this recognition for their work with Jay's Hope, a local non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the quality-of-life of children with cancer and their families in Georgia by extending HOPE through social, emotional, spiritual, educational and financial support.
The Wesleyan tennis team joined forces with Jay's Hope to assist with their 11th Annual Trek or Treat Road Race. They arrived around 5:00am to help unpack the medals that were to be awarded and then spent the rest of the morning directing, cheering and supporting the participants throughout the race.
The Trek or Treat Road Race will be held once again on Saturday, October 28, 2017, and should you be inclined to participate as either a volunteer or a runner, please go to www.jayshope.org for more information.
"Hearing the news of our women's tennis team being recognized by the ITA and awarded the ITA Division III Community Service Award has been incredibly humbling. What an amazing group of women we have!" remarked head tennis coach Alex Kosicki. "Being able to assist Jay's Hope with their Trek-or-Treat road race was really special and we hope to continue this relationship for years to come. I want to thank all the members of the team that took part in helping with that event. We are looking into volunteering more of our time within our community in the future with numerous organizations that are leading the way and helping those less fortunate."
