Women’s Lacrosse Runs for a Cure

SAINT LEO, Fla. – Continuing to make an impressive imprint within the community, the Saint Leo women's lacrosse team did their part in ensuring that research for childhood cancer continued as they participated in the inaugural Chick-Fil-A Fall Stampede 5K/Family Walk, last Saturday from Curtis Hixon Park.

A Saint Leo Student-Services initiative, the women's lacrosse team joined a host of other Saint Leo students, faculty, and staff in completing the 5K run. The race raised crucial money and awareness as researchers make on-going strides in finding a cure for multiple childhood cancers.

"It was great to see such a spirited Saint Leo community turnout, said head coach Lesley Graham. "We loved being able to be a part of it. We bonded as a team, and got to do so at an event that raises awareness and funds for such an important cause."

100 percent of donations went directly to the Children's Cancer Center, with funds going to advanced research, as well as essential programs to assist local families touched by the disease.
