Thanks to the folks at the University of Delaware, we recently stumbled upon a pretty cool feature story, up currently on, regarding a recent visit to a local Ronald McDonald House by the men’s and women’s basketball teams.

Although both squads are busy with their respective seasons and were in the middle of final exams, on December 11 the Blue Hens headed to a local house in Wilmington, Del. for the organization’s annual Share-A-Night event.

The event featured different speeches from those whose lives have been changed by the Ronald McDonald House as well as the UD squads caroling, signing autographs, taking pictures, and getting to know the young children. You can check out the full story by clicking this link, and can also see a photo gallery from the night.

“It’s a wonderful experience knowing that you’re making even a small impact on the lives of families,” said UD’s men’s basketball head coach Monte Ross.

Added UD women’s head coach Tina Martin, “Our teams take on a special responsibility when they become role models, so for them to be able to be here, to put a smile on a youngster’s face who is struggling means the world, to not only myself, but to the University and certainly to those families, who are making our team smile as well.”
