SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Members of the Sacramento State rowing squad recently donated their time to visit with patients at Shriners Hospital for Children in Sacramento.
Shriners Hospital provides care to children with neuromusculoskeletal conditions, burn injuries and other special health care needs in a family-centered environment regardless of the patients' ability to pay.
The rowing team's 90-minute visit with the children included making bracelets and necklaces, playing Jenga, hot potato with a turkey, and a game of Just Dance on the Wii.
Among other community service acts members of the rowing team have participated recently include Your Next Step is the Cure 5K Walk/Run, as well as the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk near the State Capitol.
The Hornets will open the spring schedule with a scrimmage against Cal and Minnesota on March 1, before hosting the season-opening Sacramento State Invitational on March 15.
