MOUNT PLEASANT - Members of the Central Michigan University gymnastics program visited local elementary schools this week as a part of the Central Athletes Reaching Everyone (C.A.R.E.) outreach program.
Members of the 2012 squad visited Sacred Heart, Vowles, Fancher, McGuire, Geniard and Pullen elementary schools this week.
The Chippewas spent time with the students during their recess periods and helped them know a little bit more about CMU Gymnastics as well as the importance of staying focused and working hard in school.
CMU is hosting its first "Tumble Craze" this Sunday inside McGuirk Arena at 2 p.m. The event is free to the public and will include free pizza to the first 100 students (groups of four) in attendance, a glow stick dance show and a complimentary autograph session following the event.
The C.A.R.E. program is continually striving to give back to communities in the greater Mount Pleasant area. Student-athletes of CMU have already volunteered over 40 hours and raised over $3,000 in 2011 as a part of the program.
