Helper Helper, a service tracking platform, has been making strides in encouraging college athletic teams to give back to their communities through their annual Helper Helper team service challenge. This challenge is open to all Division I, II, and III athletics teams that track their service through Helper Helper, and the top 64 teams are selected based on the service they complete from January 1st- March 3rd.
The challenge is structured as a tournament, with the top 64 teams going head to head with the team who completes the most service during that week. The winning team moves on to the next round, with the ultimate goal of being crowned the Helper Helper team service challenge champion.
This year, the winning team was the Division II Angelo State University Women’s Volleyball team. This dedication to service not only earned the team the championship title but also had a profound impact on their community.
Throughout the challenge, the Angelo State Women’s Volleyball team volunteered at the Boys and Girls Club, helped with a community Egg Hunt, worked in an animal shelter, food bank, and more. The team’s commitment to giving back demonstrates the power of sports in making a positive impact beyond the field of play.
Helper Helper’s team service challenge not only promotes service and volunteerism among college athletes, but also fosters healthy competition and team bonding. By bringing teams together to serve their communities, athletes are able to develop a sense of camaraderie and purpose beyond their sport.
The Helper Helper team service challenge is just one example of how sports can be a force for good. It reminds us that athletes have a platform and an opportunity to make a positive impact in the world. Congratulations to the Angelo State University Women’s Volleyball team on their well-deserved championship title, and to all the teams who participated in this year’s challenge. May their commitment to service inspire others to get involved in their communities and make a difference.
