The Pack Gives Back

Nevada's student-athletes are defined by their competitiveness to excel on and off the field.

That drive to be the best also extends to their community service efforts, so this year, the Wolf Pack has fully embraced the challenge of winning the Mountain West Conference Student-Athlete Advisory Committee's Community Service Award.

Through the leadership of Nevada's Student-Athlete Advisory Council, the Wolf Pack has already logged over 1,000 hours of community service so far this year toward its goal of winning the challenge among league institutions.

Those hours have included reading in schools, visiting hospitals, holding camps and clinics, raising money for their fellow students who are also young mothers and giving out safe Halloween candy as well as volunteering at the Race for the Cure, the Food Bank of Northern Nevada, the Tough Mudder, the Reno Balloon Races and the Animal Ark just to name a few.

The Mountain West school that tallies the most community service hours will be presented with an award at the Mountain West Basketball Tournament in Las Vegas in March.
