Morrisville State men’s lacrosse raises over $4000 for the Wounded Warrior Project for second year

Release written by Courtney Cook, Sports Information Student Assistant MORRISVILLE, N.Y. – The Morrisville State College men’s lacrosse program teamed up with the Wounded Warriors Project, Saturday April 28th in North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) action against Hilbert College. The Mustangs raised $4,000 for the Wounded Warriors Project, from the raffles, gate proceeds, online jersey auction and a $200 donation from senior Tom Longland (Dunnville, ONT) the 2012 Rays of Light Servant Leadership Award recipient. In 2011 the Mustangs partnered with the WWP and raised $4500 for the cause in their 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. 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. An action-oriented, interactive learning lab, the college is a national leader in technology. Lauded for its exemplary, innovative and effective community service programs, the college was named to the 2012 President’s Higher Community Service Honor Roll.
