Pioneer Rush for Literacy
The Pioneers are involved in the Pioneer Rush for Literacy, a Program collaborating education with physical fitness. It's a chance for our student-athletes to go out and make a difference in the community. Every Pioneer student-athlete volunteers 20 hours throughout the year. This program allows children to have an educational break while still learning literacy and math concepts through exercie. While many of the students are not familiar with Delta College Athletics, that doesn't stop thm from being thrilled by the Delta athletes as they lead through exercises in their green and white uniforms.

DC5K Run Choose Hope for Cancer Event
Friendly, supportive competitions like the Delta 5K run give people the opportunity to stand up against cancer. October 27th was the 5th year Delta College held this event on campus. Although it was a cold morning, it didn't stop runners and walkers, ages 7-65, from coming out and competing in the race. A gorup of Pioneer student-athletes came to support the event by setting up beforehand, handing out water during the race and doing clean up after the event. The day continued with fun for all ages while they cheered on our Lady Pioneers who took on Jackson College in their last game of their regular season. At the end of the day, we were able to raise $300 to support the local cancer societies.
