Loras Celebrates "Take a Kid to the Game Day"

The Loras SAAC provided this post today:
"On October 22nd, Loras’s SAAC hosted the 'Take a Kid to Game Day' football event. The afternoon included 50 children from the Dubuque Youth Football League attending the event along with various student-athletes who volunteered. Everyone was able to enjoy the Loras football team compete in a competitive game against Coe College. All children at the event were given a free admission ticket along with the opportunity of being honored during halftime. All the children were taken onto the football field with Loras student athletes as their team and coaches were announced over the loud speaker for all the spectators. After the game, everyone headed to the gym where Loras football players signed autographs for the children. Coach Mierkiewicz ended the day talking to the young players and their families about football, family and the importance of school. It was a great afternoon enjoyed by everyone who attended and volunteered!"
