W&J Raises $2K for Parkinson's Research
from staff reports
WASHINGTON, Pa. - The Washington & Jefferson College men's lacrosse team raised over $2,000 last weekend for Parkinson's disease research and prevention during its annual fall tournament at Alexandre Stadium.
The idea to raise money during the tournament was a collaborative effort between W&J and Wheeling Jesuit University. Donations also came from other schools participating in the tournament: Seton Hill University, Lake Erie College, Walsh University and Mercyhurst College-North East.
A total of $2,225.96 was raised during the tournament from gate receipts and donations. Referees who worked the games also donated their fees.
"The fall tournament was a big success and we were thrilled with how much money we raised for research of this disease," said W&J Head Coach Chad Moore. "All of these schools came together for a great cause and we hope to continue it in the future. I am proud of our student-athletes and fans."
Washington & Jefferson begins its seventh season under Moore this spring. The Presidents open the 2010 campaign on Feb. 27th (Noon) at home versus Susquehanna. W&J established a school record last season with eight victories.
