Badger Women's Hockey players Molly Doner and Kelly Jaminski visited teens involved with the United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) Teen Summer Program on July 13, 2012.
The UCP Teen Summer Program is an initiative of the Madison-based non-profit that provides fun-filled activities and support for children with disabilities.
"UCP is very grateful for the time that the UW student-athletes donated," said UCP Service Coordinator Caroline Miller. "It gave the teens in our program the opportunity to build connections in the community!"
The event also provided freshman Doner's her first experience volunteering as a Badger athlete.
"I had such a great experience and loved meeting and playing with all the kids," said Doner. "They are truly an inspiration and I received much more from the experience than I gave."
Doner and Jaminski played games one-on-one with camp attendees and participated in arts and crafts at the event.
"With the help of the [student-athletes] we were able to discover interests that we didn't know our teens had," said Miller. "One teen in particular played football for an hour and we didn't even know before that she liked to play!"
