Student-athletes, coaches and staff from the University of New Mexico athletics department took part in today's ASUNM Community Experience at Whittier Community Center. The Associated Students of UNM organized a volunteer force of over 1,000 members of the UNM community to conduct a one-day, city-wide service project.
The Lobos worked with the staff at the Whittier Community Center to put on a carnival for youth in the neighborhood. Over 100 student-athletes, representing all Lobo teams, ran the inflatable jumper, slides, a rock-climbing wall, face painting and other games for the kids attending.
The first Spring Storm was held in 2002 and shortly thereafter evolved into a chartered agency known as Community Experience. It is one of seven agencies led by the executive branch of the Associated Students of the University of New Mexico, UNM's student government.
