On Friday, September 18th, the Rob Murphy Foundation returned to Bagley Elementary to host a “Back to School” event. Head Coach Rob Murphy, a group of volunteers and some of the members of the EMU Men’s Basketball coaching staff and team were on hand to help distribute arts and crafts supplies and read with some of the classrooms. They also got to spend some time during recess with the kids jump roping, playing hopscotch and even shooting some hoops.
This was the foundation’s third time at Bagley Elementary as part of their efforts to help make an impact at the school Coach Murphy attended growing up.
“Being able to return to Bagley is special for me but now that we’ve made a few trips with the team and volunteers it’s nice to see the kids excitement when we arrive and to build relationships with them to let them know we’re here for them,” said EMU Men’s Basketball Head Coach Rob Murphy.
The Rob Murphy Foundation was founded in July 2014 to make sure every child has opportunities. Through programming at Bagley Elementary, the Boys and Girls Club of Huron Valley and other local and regional partnerships, the Rob Murphy Foundation is able to transform the youth and reshape their futures.
