IN THE FALL OF 2012, HOLY CROSS JUNIOR ROOMMATES JEFF REPPUCCI AND DEREK KUMP DECIDED THAT THEY WANTED TO STEP OUTSIDE THEIR CAMPUS GATES AND LEARN A BIT MORE ABOUT THE GREATER CITY OF WORCESTER, MA—A CITY THAT, DESPITE BEING THE SECOND LARGEST IN NEW ENGLAND, CAN FEEL LIKE IT'S FAR REMOVED FOR MANY OF THE 35,000+ COLLEGE STUDENTS WHO CALL WORCESTER HOME EVERY YEAR. BEING COLLEGE HOCKEY PLAYERS, REPPUCCI AND KUMP’S NATURAL CONNECTION TO THE COMMUNITY WAS THROUGH SPORTS. THEY VISITED RECREATION SPACES LIKE PARKS AND SCHOOLYARDS, BUT FOUND SPACES THAT WERE EITHER NON-EXISTENT OR IN SERIOUS DISREPAIR. THUS, THE INSPIRATION FOR WORKING FOR WORCESTER WAS BORN: REPPUCCI AND KUMP WOULD LAUNCH AN ORGANIZATION DEDICATED TO MOBILIZING COLLEGE STUDENTS TO IMPROVE RECREATION INFRASTRUCTURE AND OPPORTUNITIES WITHIN NEIGHBORHOODS ACROSS THE CITY.

Bands include
