Holiday Cheer at Monmouth University

Nearly 65 Monmouth University student-athletes brought holiday cheer and gifts to a special group of children at The LADACIN Network in Ocean Township, NJ last week. The LADACIN Network provides education, therapy, social, residential, and support services for people with cerebral palsy and other physical disabilities.

The participants were members of the Monmouth Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (MSAAC). "The word seems to have spread among the student-athletes that sharing their generosity with LADACIN is a great way to initiate the holiday and a welcome break from preparation for finals,” said Jennifer Thomas, Associate Athletics Director for Compliance and MSAAC’s advisor. “It was, as always, a fun and memorable morning,” added Thomas."

As often happens, those who gave got even more out of the experience than those they were helping.
