Pathways for Keene held their 17th Annual 4 on the 4th Road Race today, and members of the Wolfpack turned out to cheer on the runners and provide them with much-needed hydration. The event raises money to support the development, maintenance, and enhancement of foot and bike paths all around Keene.

The Wolfpack was invited to help build a new playground for our local YMCA, and several members came out to lend a hand for the children in our hometown. Amy Vaughn, Director of School Age Childcare at the YMCA, had this to say:
"So I heard what a bunch of you fellas did today. I heard you were absolute workhorses for an awesome cause. You just quietly showed up, selflessly worked your asses off and made something amazing happen for a bunch of lucky kids in our community. I see the stuff you do all the time, and I wanted to thank you guys for all the impact you make off the field. This club is an awesome example of why rugby is special. Thanks Wolfpack, for all the great things you do for this community...and for busting your asses today to build that badass playground today."
Thank you very much to Amy for her kind words, and thank you to the Keene YMCA for giving us an opportunity to help out in our community!
Who says there's no rugby in the summer? Keene State held their very first annual Sam Martin '09 Memorial Sevens Tournament this Saturday, and the Wolfpack were invited to participate. Monadnock Rugby availed themselves well, taking home third place and a shiny new plate for their efforts.
The tournament will continue to be held annually to benefit a scholarship created in the memory of Samuel A. Martin, a Keene State rugby player, Safety major, and multi-sport athlete who unexpectedly passed away at the age of 30.
