Passport Health Plan has signed on to be the presenting sponsor of the Bellarmine University Knights in Action, a group of student-athletes who participate in community service events.
The Bellarmine University Knights in Action comprises representatives from each athletic team, along with the dance team and the cheer squad. The group meets monthly to discuss sport-related issues and concerns affecting student-athletes, and serves as the direct link between student-athletes, the administration, and the NCAA.
“We give a face to Bellarmine Athletics through our community service projects and fundraisers for Make-A-Wish,” said Pam Stackhouse, Associate Director of Bellarmine University Athletics. “Our goals are to be one voice for Bellarmine student-athletes. We strive to achieve greatness not only in the classroom and fields of competition, but also throughout the community. We work hard to maintain a positive image for Bellarmine through our community outreach projects as we promote and support Knights Nation.”
“At Passport, we take pride in working with community advocates and local providers to make a difference in the lives of the people we serve,” said Passport Health Plan CEO Mark B. Carter. “That’s why this partnership with the dedicated student-athletes in the Knights in Action program made perfect sense. Together, we can help all Kentuckians live healthier lives.”
The members of Bellarmine Knights in Action take part in community service projects throughout the school year and also raise money for Make-A-Wish.
