Rugby Alums Give Back With “Day of Service”

UMBC Rugby players past and present joined together for the first UMBC Rugby Day of Service, partnering with Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake and Habitat for Humanity Sandtown to demolish and clean up one site, and to build a new home on another. Close to 30 players from the men’s and women’s club participated.

“As an organization, we were looking for an event that would allow us to bring all of the teams together, past and present, to do something positive in the greater Baltimore community,” said Tracy Williams, Jr. ’06, who helped organize the event and who hopes to make this an annual event. “We were able to leverage our extensive alumni and current player network to make a long lasting difference in the lives of families in need.”
