2018 Whitewater Youth 30-hour Famine

On Friday, Feb 23rd starting at 4:30pm through the evening of Saturday, Feb 24th, ending at about 7:00pm, 8th grade and high school youth will unite together to bring awareness to our global and local famine crisis, by participating in a 30-hour famine. There is room for you, too!!

Youth throughout Whitewater will begin fasting on Friday, Feb 23rd at noon through 6:00pm Saturday, with a meal to follow. For 30 hours youth will be participating in a lock-in, sleeping in cardboard boxes and participating in community service events to help unite our community in battling against hunger.

Students will be in cardboard box houses on Saturday, Feb 24th from 9-11am in front of the Whitewater Walmart. They will be taking monetary donations and non-perishable food donations for the Whitewater Pantry.

What is it like to not have anything to eat or to live in a cardboard box?
This experience will give our local youth a taste of what so many deal with every single day.  All donations appreciated!

The UWW Rugby Team won the USA Rugby Collegiate Division II Championship last December and again last weekend at Furman University, Greenville, SC. In route to this year’s Championship, Whitewater defeated Pittsburgh State University (KS) 61-15 in the round of 16, the Grand Valley State University (MI) 24-12 in the round of 8. Both matches were held at Miami University, Oxford, OH. The team traveled two weeks later to Furman University to meet up with North Dakota State University in the semi-finals. The Warhawks defeated the Bison 51-25 on Saturday, then met up with Virginia Military Institute in the finals on Sunday. VMI proved to be a tenacious team. Despite the Warhawks putting the first points on the board, VMI led at half 27 -17. This was the first time the Warhawks trailed at half all season. The team battled back to tie the match 27 all with 8 minutes remaining to play. Still tied with less than two minutes remaining, UWW scored their final try and made the conversion to take a 34 – 27 lead which they held until the final whistle. The team is coached by Matt Pederson (Lake Mills), Pat O’Connor and Tim Probst (Whitewater)
