Webster Athletics Team Up For Webster Works Worldwide

As it does every year, the Webster University Athletic Department teams, coaches, and staff once again took part in the annual Webster Works Worldwide, helping out various organizations, including schools, agencies, and parks, throughout the St. Louis area, on October 4. 

Webster Works Worldwide (WWW), a University-based community service project started in 1995, saw the Webster community come together to help those in need in the St. Louis area for the 23rd straight year.

Many of the Athletic department teams worked as groups, tackling assignments that varied from helping the elderly make Halloween decorations to gardening, to cleaning up a creek.  To see a short video chronicling the day for the department, view a short video by staff videographer Austin Ratanasitee HERE.
