University of Missouri students spent Thanksgiving break in Aurora, Colorado. They weren’t hear as tourists but as volunteers working at the Children’s Hospital of Colorado.
This trip is part of the Mizzou Alternative Breaks (MAB) program. Founded in 1991, MAB is led completely by students. From the board of directors to the site leaders, every participant is a Mizzou student. Thanksgiving break service trips provide Mizzou students the unique opportunity to gain a global perspective while immersed in a life-changing week of service to people and communities around the world. This year 120 students traveled to nine locations over Thanksgiving break.
RMT hosted the MAB group, @MAB_Aurora2, for dinner and games on Friday, November 24. It was great getting to know these amazing students that sacrifice their Thanksgiving with family for volunteer service.
The Children’s Hospital of Colorado was founded in 1908 to provide care for children of all ages. The private, not-for-profit pediatric healthcare network has more than 3,000 pediatric specialists and 5,000 full-time employees dedicated to providing high-quality coordinated programs of patient care, education, research and advocacy.
