UHV Sports Teams Involved In Charity Events

Posted: Updated:

UHV men's and women's golf team will be sponsoring a Christmas Toy Drive benefiting the Boys and Girls Club of Victoria this week.

New toy donations, unwrapped, can be dropped off at the UHV athletic office at 3302 N. Ben Wilson St. Monday through Friday this week from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Anyone donating a new unwrapped toy for a child between the ages of 5 and 15 years will received two UHV baseball tickets, two UHV softball tickets and two Claud Jacobs golf tournament tickets for their donation.

Make this year's Christmas special for someone by stopping by and donating a gift to the cause.

Over the past seven years, the University of Houston men's soccer team has raised nearly $12,000 for cancer research through the Movember Movement during the month of November.

So far this year the Jaguars have raised nearly $900 for the cause as they try to bring awareness to men's health issues, especially prostate cancer.

The group has worked diligently for the cause and for cancer research as they attempted to grow moustaches during November to help support the campaign. During the last seven years the group has raised $11,902 for their efforts.

Uriel Garcia (SO/Pharr, TX) topped the players' fund-raising efforts with $101 in donation.

You can still make donation to the campaign or find out more information by going to http://us.movember.com/ and then clicking on donate. Search for UHV soccer to go to the Jaguars' home page to make a donation to help the UHV soccer team's efforts..
