Community service is a great way for Curry students to learn and grow by actively participating in organized service experiences that successfully meet the needs of the greater community. Participating in community service provides students with opportunities through which they can reach out to the surrounding area and work to fight for social causes.
Members of four different Curry College athletic teams came out in force during the weekend before Thanksgiving 2016 to volunteer for Best Buddies Massachusetts' Milton 5K Gobbler race/walk. Representatives from Women's Soccer, Cross Country and Tennis, as well as the Football team, helped out with this community event.
For the fifth straight year Curry College athletics teams volunteered their time to help out the Milton Foundation for Education. In October of 2016, it was the Women's Lacrosse, Men’s and Women's Soccer and Football teams representing Curry at the 18th Annual Monster Dash 5K Race and Fun Run.
On Saturday, October 29, the Curry Men's Basketball team volunteered at the Walsh Middle School's 14th Annual 5K Fundraising Fun Run in Framingham. The team helped with multiple facets of the run - setting up the event, serving as the school mascots (Wild Cats), and cheering on runners as they crossed the finish line.
On Sunday, September 25, the Curry College Women's Soccer Team participated in a community service project, serving as "Cheer Squad" for over 9,000 participants in the Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk.

For Spring Break of 2016, several Curry students opted to spend their time volunteering for Curry's annual Alternative Spring Break. This year's trip took them down to West Virginia, to build homes for those in need through Habitat for Humanity. Check out this amazing video by Emily Aronica '16, courtesy of The 'Currier Times'.
On Saturday, October 16, 2015 Curry College Athletics once again partnered with Team IMPACT, in their mission to match children facing life-threatening and chronic illnesses with local college athletic teams.
