Men's Lacrosse Reaches Out to the Cambridge Community

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- In the past few weeks, the Harvard men's lacrosse team participated in two events with a goal to reach out to the Cambridge community.

On Thursday, January 22, several members of of the team visited the local Boys and Girls Club of Cambridge. The team brought along a few sticks and taught the children basic lacrosse skills and how to play the game. 

The players also balanced their time in other areas with the kids including playing pool, basketball, and other fun activities. The children enjoyed having the team there to play with, and look forward to meeting up with the players again in the near future.

On the following weekend, approximately 25 of the Crimson players traveled to two sites in the local Boston area to help build houses with Habitat for Humanity. Through the cold, winter weather, the players spent the entire day installing rafters and insulation, and putting up wall frames.
