  • Lance Ware earns spot on SEC Community Service Team

    Lance Ware, Kentucky

    Known for his tenacity on the court, sophomore Lance Ware’s passion has been equally as evident away from basketball as he’s emerged as one of the most engaging and compassionate student-athletes on campus. During his two years at UK, Ware has spent more than 100 hours working with children at basketball camps or volunteering for community engagement projects across the state of Kentucky. This past summer, Ware visited with hospital staff in Covington, Kentucky, which served as the region’s primary COVID-19 hospital, to thank the staff for its work during the pandemic and also visited Pillar in Crestwood, Kentucky, to share in a field day with adults living with developmental disabilities.

    Throughout this season, Ware has also participated in food packaging and delivery for God’s Pantry and multiple holiday outreach projects through the Salvation Army, as well as helping with UK Athletics’ tornado relief telethon with the Red Cross that raised more than $5 million for those in need in the western part of Kentucky. Ware’s popularity as the emcee of summer basketball camps has also carried over into his work during the season as he’s visited with military families at Fort Knox and visited with elementary students in Fayette County Schools. Last season, with more strict health and safety protocols in place, Ware participated in multiple Zoom sessions to inspire local elementary students and holiday outreach projects through the Salvation Army. He and his teammates also participated in a virtual “Read Across America Day” session.
