The student-athlete (lacrosse player) went on a missions trip to Uganda, this past summer, and volunteered at the Sanyu Babies' Home, an orphanage which houses up to 50 children.
She is planning to return to Sanyu in the near future, but, in the meantime, she is organizing a 5K Diaper Run in March 2011 in Olney, Maryland. Whitney wants to use the proceeds to purchase and send diapers for the little ones, she has grown so fond of, at the babies' home. In this article, she explains why the need for 'nappies' is so pressing.
(Here's her Facebook page.) Good on you, Whitney!
