RIC MEN’S BASKETBALL HELPS OUT
“A WISH COMES TRUE”

Providence, R.I.—The Rhode Island College men’s basketball team volunteered for the A Wish Come True organization today at the CVS 5K race in downtown Providence.

 

 

 

 "It was a great experience for our guys to help out a fantastic organization like A Wish Come True,"  RIC Head Men's Basketball Coach Bob Walsh said. "Every now and then we need a reminder of how lucky we are, and helping people who may not be as fortunate has a great impact on our guys."

 

The event raised $10,000 for the organization, which provides wishes for sick children in both Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
