FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
December 16, 2016
MANSFIELD, Mass. - The Northeast-10 Conference announced plans for it's first-ever 'Embrace the Impact' week today. The conference will feature a community engagement story from it's membership each day of the week.
The Embrace the Impact week will begin this coming Monday, December 19 and run through Friday, December 23. For a complete schedule of the releases, please see below.
One of the tenents of the NE10's new branding campaign is Our Character Remains Undefeated. The headline speaks directly to the league's commitment to community-service efforts, and how it is a hallmark of the league and what it stands for: that the NE10's student-athletes exhibit great character; they conduct themselves with integrity on and off the field of play through hard work.
"Our Embrace the Impact week will allow us to shine the spotlight on some of the tremendous things that our student-athletes are doing in their local communities," said Associate Commissioner Jacob VanRyn. "We felt it made sense to do it surrounding the holiday season and it fits perfectly with our new branding efforts, which are aimed to spotlight our successes both on and off the field."
Schedule of Embrace the Impact Releases:
Monday - Southern Connecticut 'Friends of Rudolph'
Tuesday - Assumption Baseball Adds Ari to Roster through Team IMPACT
Wednesday - Adelphi Softball 'Island Harvest' Efforts
Thursday - Southern New Hampshire Ice Hockey Adds Alex through Team IMPACT
Friday - Saint Michael's Organ Donation Efforts
