The CHAMPS/Life Skills program of the UCCS Athletics Department will host their first ever Halloween BOO-zar set for Friday, Oct. 28th from 6:00-8:00pm at the University Center Gymnasium.

UCCS student-athletes will provide children in the Colorado Springs area with a safe place for trick-or-treating. Each team will have a booth or activity area set up with games, candy, schedules and posters. Area children are invited to attend and wear their costumes.

There will be a costume contest for the children at 7:30pm.

Admission is to bring non-perishable goods to benefit Care & Share. The number of non-perishable goods will equal the amount of tickets to reimburse for prizes or candy.

The UCCS Athletics program is new to the NCAA CHAMPS/Life Skills program as of Fall 2005. The CHAMPS/Life Skills Program was created by the NCAA to support the student development initiatives of its member institutions and to enhance the quality of the student-athlete experience withint the university setting. A student-athlete's development is focused on five areas: academics, athletics, personal development, career development and community service.
