PHILADELPHIA – Members of the Philadelphia University Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) joined forces with fellow Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) institutions to participate in the first CACC Mascot Day at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia last Friday.
DeBlasio and Haas handed out small gifts to the children who stopped by, while Calder was Phil the Ram and danced with the mascots from Bloomfield College, Goldey-Beacom College, and Georgian Court University for the children’s entertainment.
Student-athletes from Chestnut Hill and the University of the Sciences all participated in the event.
The first-ever CACC Mascot Day was an effort to bring the conference together for a single community engagement project.
