This group of optimists heralds from Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. This mix of athletes and activists participated in the 12th Annual Mayors Grand River Cleanup. This crew of individuals wore shirts with the phrase "I can be the change." MYOW was inspired by their dedication and commitment to actions not words. This group is making strides to create the world in which they live defined by a sense of social justice and shared responsibility. Leanne and Anne, a soccer player and a lacrosse player gave up their Saturday morning that could have been reserved for sleeping in after a long week of classes and practice, to pick up trash along the river. Sometimes, it's not easy. Sometimes, it's dirty. Sometimes, it's not fun. But, you can be the change.
