CHARLESTON, S.C., Oct. 23.--The Citadel's corps of cadets will participate in Make a Difference Day, sponsored annually by USA Weekend magazine, on Saturday, October 25. People from all over the United States will be aiding in the community service project and performing various volunteer work. The Citadel's involvement is three fold, consisting of separate contributions to the Charleston community. The Citadel has always taken an active role in community service and now is striving to take the leading role in serving the Charleston area.
The first is the cadets participation in the Race For The Cure, held annually for the Breast Cancer Foundation to raise money for their organization. Approximately 80 cadets will be in charge of helping prepare for the event.
The Citadel along with other area teams will also be involved in the Walk To Cure Diabetes. There will be some 200 cadets walking with another 50 cadets helping the organization with the preparation. The walk will begin at 10:00 a.m. at Hampton Park.
Last, members of the corps will be involved in helping the Charleston Youth Development Center repair baseball fields and upgrade the facility to better accommodate the needs of the under privileged Charleston youth.
