Morrisville State men’s lacrosse joins the Wounded Warrior Project for second year

Courtney Cook, Sports Information Student Assistant MORRISVILLE, N.Y. – The Morrisville State College men’s lacrosse program has teamed up with the Wounded Warriors Project, Saturday April 28th in North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) action against Hilbert College. Last year the Mustangs raised $4,500 for the Wounded Warriors Project in the first year hosting an event. Founded in 2003, the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) was created to honor and empower wounded warriors who acquire service-connected wounds, injuries and illnesses while serving in our country’s military branches. The project provides comprehensive programs and services to wounded warriors and their families. The WWP program is near to the hearts of Morrisville State men’s lacrosse players, as several have siblings, parents or other family members serving in our nation’s military units. All gate proceeds from the contest will be donated to the WWP program, along with revenue received from general donations, programs and raffles. Also, Morrisville State will be holding an online jersey auction for jersey’s worn during the commemorative event. The online auction will begin Monday, April 23rd and continue through Sunday, April 29 at noon. Winners will be announced Monday, April 30. For more information on the WWP event, please contact the sports information office at athletics@morrisville.edu or at 315-684-6250. Morrisville State College sets the world in motion for students. Curriculums are enriched with applied learning and pave the way for opportunity at both the Morrisville and Norwich campuses.
