As the 2013-14 season has come to a close, Sun Devil athletics has seen its programs break many records, including one that has no win-loss record: serving the local community.
Now that’s a win-win!
This year, the Sun Devil Athletics’ student-athletes and staff have served nearly a quarter of a million community members over the span of more than 6,000 hours.
What can you do in 6,000 hours? Here are a few options:
Take 3428.5 trips to that town down I-10.
Walk from Tempe to New York City 7.59 times.
Relive ASU football’s 2013 season (including its Pac-12 South title and Territorial Cup victories) over 128 times.
Serving the community is one of the key pillars of the Sun Devils Athletics Way. In an effort to continue the program’s growth, ASU has served 11.7% more community members compared to last year, and added an astonishing 35.3% more hours to that of the 2012-13 campaign.
Since statistics on service began being recorded in 2010-11, ASU has increased its service by 143.56% and dedicated 309.22% more hours.
Some of the community service performed by ASU student-athletes in 2013-14 included the Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Sparky’s Tour, United Way, Pat’s Run, Yuma Food Bank, Operation Fix It, St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance, and traveling to the Hopi and Navajo Nations in Tuba City and the San Carlos Apache Nation in San Carlos, Ariz.
