NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Members of the Belmont women's cross country team recently took time off during their off season workouts to spend time with the local non-profit Mercy Multiplied.
Assistant Coach Ashley Casavant and members of the team look to visit the Nashville Mercy home a few times a semester to spend time with the residents, sharing a meal and building friendships with the young women there. Casavant has been involved with the organization on a personal level for the last five years.
"Mercy is an incredible organization," said Casavant. "I felt that it was just a perfect fit for my own athletes to also get involved."
Senior Mara White, said of the experience, "I love my girls at Mercy! It always brightens my day to spend a little time with them."
