The University of Utah men's basketball team participated in the University Health Care Annual Kids' Health and Safety Fair Saturday, in an effort to give back to the community and support other on-campus programs. The Runnin' Utes were seen signing autographs, taking pictures with attendees, shooting baskets and participating in health-awareness activities.
"I think we have an obligation to give back to a community and a campus that has given a lot to us," said head coach Jim Boylen. "We want to use our stature as a Division I basketball program to help raise public awareness of events like the Kids' Health and Safety Fair. As soon as I took this job I said we were going to do that and we are following through."
The fair was held at the University of Utah Neuropsychiatric Institute and was open to children and families, free of charge. The event featured exhibits and activities aimed at helping to educate children about health and safety issues.
