maineThe Black Bears Fueling Station was created to assist student-athletes in keeping their bodies nourished on a day-to-day basis.

“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to offer this resource to our student-athletes,” said Ben Randall, associate head athletic trainer. “It’s enriching to have so many people within our department step up and help this project flourish into something great. It was a need that many of us had identified, and to be able to make this a reality gives me immense pride.”
