UTEP student-athletes will participate in the second annual Project MOVE (Miner Opportunities for Volunteer Experiences) on Saturday, Feb. 19 at various organizations around the community.

Project MOVE, sponsored by UTEP’s Division of Student Affairs, gives students, faculty and staff the opportunity to volunteer at over 40 community agencies around the El Paso region.

“This marks the second year our students-athletes have been involved in the program,” said UTEP Director of Athletics, Bob Stull. “We are proud of the enthusiastic participation of all of our student-athletes. It provides a great experience for the them and the different agencies we have become involved with around the community.”

Over 150 student-athletes will be involved with the project that witnessed over 800 volunteers and 3,250 hours of service in its inaugural campaign.

The Miners have already accumulated over 2,000 hours of community service this academic year as part of “UTEP Miners Adopt a Piece of El Paso” project, similar to MOVE. Launched in August of 2010, UTEP’s squads have had the opportunity to make an impact on the region while developing relationships with various non-profit organizations.
