Lake Havasu students were part of the Exceptional Rodeo and Spring Fair. The event was sponsored by HoofBeats from Heaven, who help improve well-being through horse therapy and related activities, and Milemarker’s Therapy Clinic, focused on family-oriented and play-based speech and occupational therapy. All student volunteers were hands-on, assisting in booth set-up and staffing booths and activities.

Balderas added that signature events like the one this past weekend allow students to find ways to further their involvement with Changemaker Central — a community of students leading social change in the local and global community — and any of the nonprofits served on Saturday.

The purpose of the week is to connect students and partner with Valley of the Sun United Way to accomplish a range of goals: improving the quality of education, combating hunger and homelessness and assisting children and families across the Valley. It also encourages students to get involved in philanthropic events year-round.

“Devils in Disguise is something every student should participate in at least once during their time in college,” Balderas said. “We have numerous projects to accommodate the different interests of the student body. Students who are hesitant to participate should join in anyway and bring their friends. They can even make new friends while participating in a great cause.”
