Friar Lacrosse Team Volunteers At Blackstone River Rubber Duck Race

Oct. 21, 2010

CUMBERLAND, R.I. - The Providence College men's lacrosse team continued its rich history of community involvement throughout Rhode Island on Sunday, October 17, when members of the team volunteered at the Blackstone River Rubber Duck Race to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Cumberland-Lincoln, R.I.

The Blackstone River Rubber Duck Race is an annual raffle-style event, where members of the community purchase rubber ducks that are simultaneously released down the river, each with a number. The ducks that make it down the river first win prizes for whoever purchased the lucky ducks. The proceeds benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Cumberland-Lincoln.

"We are all so very thankful for the time spent with us and all of your hard work. We really couldn't have done it without you," said Tamara Burman, the Director of Program Services for the Cumberland-Lincoln Boys and Girls Club. She added that the duck race is one of many events during the year that allows young adults of Rhode Island to help serve the youth of the state through the Boys and Girls Club.

"We believe that it is a major part of our responsibility as a program to get involved in the community. It is our way of appreciating the great work done by Tammy and our friends at the Boys and Girls Club of Rhode Island," added Friar Head Coach Chris Burdick.

The team saw 18 student-athletes volunteer at the program, in addition to Burdick and two of the program's student managers.
