Boulder, Colorado suffered immensely from the floods that swept the state. The home of the Colorado University Buffaloes faced over $49 million dollars in damage to date, and the estimates continue to grow daily.
The Buffs’ men’s lacrosse team saw the tragedy as a call to action. More than 50 student athletes took to the Boulder streets to lend a helping hand. These scholar athletes were received with open arms and welcomed in to the community.
They helped with removing drywall, insulation, kitchens, bathrooms and even a fireplace. The experience became personal when the athletes actually got to work on the front lines of the recent disaster.
Mitchell Fenton, a junior goalie, spearheaded the effort. He remembered the times when the situation got almost a bit too real,
It was terrible digging through four inches of mud and finding an older couple’s wedding album.
