Community service is a vital role of the collegiate studentathlete. Throughout the year, the Lady Mocs give their time and talents to many organizations. Last summer, Head Coach Wes Moore served as the Grand Marshall for the Area 4 Special Olympics and several of the Lady Mocs were on hand for the event. The Lady Mocs also assisted with many of the events at the Nursing Home Olympics in the McKenzie Arena including the wheel chair obstacle course, bowling and races. At ReadFest 2009 at Finley Stadium, the Lady Mocs helped act out stories. The Lady Mocs are very involved with the Bethel Bible Village, putting on clinics for the children. In September, the Lady Mocs were one of several teams who helped raise awareness and money in the fight against breast cancer by running in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure that started and ended at the McKenzie Arena on the UTC campus.
