Letters to the Editor | Wednesday, April 16, 2008

Dear ND Student Athletes,

I want to personally thank all of those student athletes that participated in the “Fit for Fun with the Irish” at the Michiana Family YMCA. Those Athletes who were at this special event showed their enthusiasm, spirit and caring to each of the young people who came through the doors of the YMCA on Saturday, April 12.

Special thanks to Harold Swanagan for all of his help in securing all of the athletes and his special help with the event. Notre Dame Athletes represented the four character values of the YMCA, Caring, Respect, Honesty and Responsibility, in the way that they handled themselves at this special Michiana Community Event.

The Notre Dame Family should be very proud in the way that these athletes represented the University. Thank you all for being such great role models for our young people. Go Irish.

Thomas J. Coxey

Executive Director
