Indiana State athletics will be celebrating 2013’s “National Student-Athlete Day,” on Friday, April 12th when the Sycamore baseball team hosts Creighton at 6:30 p.m. at Bob Warn Field by serving the community. The Sycamores will be collecting monetary and other donations at the game to support the Council of Domestic Abuse in its NO ONE LEFT BEHIND campaign.
The mission of the Council on Domestic Abuse, Inc., is the elimination of domestic violence and sexual assault through societal change and the empowerment of abused individuals and their minor children. Making a difference in the lives of thousands of victims, survivors and their families is the best reason to give to CODA.
Student-athletes will be accepting monetary donations throughout the game and CODA will be collecting donation items at the gate. A list of acceptable donation items is below.
National Student-Athlete Day, which was on April 6th this year, was created to recognize the accomplishments of student-athletes nationwide who excel in the classroom, on the playing fields and in their communities.
Indiana State is proud to celebrate the wonderful talents and accomplishments of the nearly 400 student-athletes who don the Blue and White. From their success in the playing arena to the countless hours in and out of the classroom needed to achieve academic success, our student-athletes have made a commitment to not only maintain, but raise, academic and athletic standards not just at Indiana State but on the national level as well.
Outside of the athletic and academic demands ISU student-athletes are committed to, they also find time to make meaningful contributions to the community. Sycamore student-athletes are role models for today’s youth and they volunteer for many causes.
