Morrisville State Men’s Soccer Team Participates in WWP Run

MORRISVILLE, N.Y. – The Morrisville State College men’s soccer team participated in the Helpers on the Homefront 5k run Saturday, August 27th, raising and donating more than $800 to the Wounded Warrior Project.

Founded in 2003, the WWP was created to honor and empower wounded warriors who incur service-related wounds, injuries and illnesses while serving in our country’s military branches since September 11, 2001.

Organized by Katie Thiel, a Stockbridge Valley Central School graduate, and spouse of a member of the Armed Forces, the event also included participants from the community who joined together to donate funds to the WWP.

As part of a continuing community service program within the athletics department, student-athletes are involved in a variety of service programs. Last year the Mustangs participated in more than 20 community service programs logging over 1,200 hours of service.
