OREGON STATE ATHLETES ON A MISSION TO MACEDONIA



National.

On June 12 a group of 15 student athletes of the Oregon State University from Corvalis, Oregon, USA will go on a mission to Macedonia to help build a house for a family of five. The project is organized by the 'Beavers Without Borders' group in cooperation with the Habitat for Humanity. Beavers is the nickname of the university's athletic program, the Oregon State Beavers.

The 15 students will stay for ten days in Macedonia where they will help build a home in Staro Nagoricane, Kumanovsko. The 15 athletes are;

Dominic Glover - American Football
Kristen Carmichael - Football (Soccer)
Roberto Nelson - Basketball
Mary Claire Benner - Softball

'Beavers Without Borders' have done similar projects in Guatamala and future projects are planned in Cambodia, Honduras and also in recent tornado destroyed cities of Tuscaloosa, Alabama and Joplin, Missouri.
