Over the years, hundreds if not thousands of Worcester-area children have been paired with Holy Cross students through Big Brothers/Big Sisters. The “Bigs” have fun adventures and get togethers with their “Littles” each week, and in the spring, they let loose at the annual Field Day in (where else?) the Fieldhouse.
On Field Day, the “Littles,” including Valentina, (above) shown here with her Big Sister, volleyball player Dana Weston ’15 from Canton, Mass., get to shoot hoops and play other games, hang out, and make crafts…plus lunch and ice cream!
Lacrosse player Jamie Ward ’15 of Glen Rock, N.J., gives his “Little,” Jayden a lift (above).
(Above) Gary Acquah ’14, a defensive lineman for Crusader football from The Bronx, N.Y., says he and his “Little,” Fernando, both enjoyed going to see the Celtics play over the winter. Fernando’s goal? “He wants to play basketball one day for Holy Cross,” Acquah says.
“Little” Damien (above) was wicked excited about getting the cones set up for a relay game with his “Big,” lacrosse player Tommy Shannon’16 of Andover, Mass.
