SAAC Members Take to the Hills with Colby Cares About Kids

After our most recent snow storm the Colby Cares About Kids (CCAK) program decided to make good use of the hills on campus for a day of sledding! It was certainly a fun day for all. The “Mentees” got to spend more time with their mentors and their mentors got to take a break from college life and enjoy a childhood pastime of all New Englanders. Thankfully this day was captured on camera, and we have some great pictures of Student Athletes who are active in CCAK and participated in this sledding extravaganza.


CCAK takes to Chapel hill, one of the best sledding venues on campus (in my expert opinion).

CCAK mentor, SAAC representative and member of Colby Men’s Basketball Ben Brassord ’14 poses with his mentee.

Christian Romano ’14 of the Football team, sizing up the slope for his next run…

looks like someone stole Christian’s idea.

Sharing tips on sledding technique?

Lily Kramlich-Taylor ’14 (middle right) may be from California, but she has become a fan of sledding thanks to her mentee and some friends.

All good things must come to an end…
