CIRCLEVILLE, OH - Ohio Christian University has partnered with Athletes in Action to provide game uniforms to children in Guatemala. The uniforms were delivered during an Athletes in Action trip to Guatemala earlier this summer. The previously worn uniforms will allow Athletes in Action to more effictively reach out to needy children in the areas that they serve.
"This children were very excited to receive the uniforms," states AIA Director of Partnerships and Compassionate Projects, Katie Campbell. "Generous donations like this help us reach out and serve more effectively all over the world."
OCU has developed a strong relationship with Athletes in Action in recent years. Trailblazers basketball alum, Milen Kostov, traveled with the AIA Bulgarian Tour in 2012 and 2013. Coach Brenda Baker toured with Athletes in Action in the Ukraine last summer. Just weeks ago, in early August, Ohio Christian coaches and staff enjoyed their first weekend leadership retreat at AIA headquarters in Xenia, Ohio.
