PROVIDENCE, R.I. - On Sunday, March 1st, the Husson men's lacrosse team raised $20,000 for Boston Children's Hospital by taking part in the Lacrosse for Life initiative.
A group of 20 Husson players and coaches shaved their heads on Sunday to help support the cause. For each player/coach who participated, $1,000 was donated to show support for the kids and families who rely on the lifesaving care and research provided by Boston Children's Hospital.
"I am very proud of our team for getting together to do this. It was a great chance to raise money and awareness for a great cause," said head coach Mike Craig. "After seeing the video of Coach Jorgenson and what he and his family have been through, it really hit home for me personally, because he is a wonderful coach and a great man who recruited me when I was a high school player. Unfortunately, sickness and cancer have either directly or indirectly impacted everyones' life so this meant a lot to everyone involved and we would like to thank the Boston Children's Hospital and Lacrosse for Life for all their great work."
The Eagles were one of over 60 programs across all three NCAA divisions to take part in the Lacrosse for Life initiative.
