U14 Nero Boys Help With Black Forest Fire Clean-up
On Saturday, July 13th, the U14 Boys Nero team combined their team building with some worthwhile community service. The Black Forest fires destroyed almost 500 homes in Colorado Springs and families were in need of assistance in clearing burned trees. The U14 Boys Nero team (Coached by Erich Bartelt), with the help of a few of their parents and four U17 Rush Nike girls gave up a Saturday morning to do just that. The boys worked very hard in clearing brush, hauling branches and combining their brut strength in removing logs. The home owner was VERY grateful for all the RUSH assistance that day. All went home tired, extremely dirty, but with a sense of accomplishment of helping a community in need. Way to go boys!!! Great work! Now that is the RUSH way!!
