    From personal experience as one of those kids, you remember these kind of things your whole life. I'm really glad to see our student athletes doing this sort of stuff. I know that it's not necessarily helping them become better athletes, but it's making everyone involved better people.

    This is something I've witnessed first-hand from both CU and DU sports teams. It makes a difference. As a parent, breaking up the monotony and getting a reminder of what's good in the world helps a lot. For the kids, distracting them and getting a smile out of them is HUGE.

    My daughter's team went there last month and the kids actually started crying when the girls had to leave. Broke her heart.
