Frederick Headed to Dominican Republic


Dec. 16, 2017


Columbus, Ohio – Christine Frederick, a member of the Ohio State track & field and cross country squads, is one of 12 Ohio State student-athletes scheduled to travel to the Dominican Republic from Dec. 15-19 for an international service-learning experience. The Department of Athletics, SASSO and Buckeyes Go International are partnering with Soles4Souls for the fifth time.

“I’m really excited to learn about the culture and try new things outside of my comfort zone,” Frederick said. “It will be a great experience to share with other student-athletes.”

Soles4Souls is a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting poverty through the distribution of shoes and clothing. More information on Soles4Souls can be found at This marks the first winter trip for OSU Athletics and two new sports programs will partake in the adventure as cross county and wrestling are sending their first representatives on a service-learning experience.
