Hofstra Lacrosse team supports Wounded Warrior Project

April 3, 2013 by  

A collaboration between Hofstra Men’s Lacrosse program, Hofstra University Department of Athletics, and the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is to take place later this month, with a game between Hofstra Pride and North Carolina. Fans of both teams will be supporting the Wounded Warriors Project, with fans perhaps as far away as Valley Stream attending the game.

Jeffrey A. Hathaway, the vice president and director of athletics for Hofstra University, spoke of his pride at being involved with such a high profile game, which he hoped would attract lacrosse fans in general in addition to supporters of the teams.

Hathaway acknowledged the importance of the WWP, offering the gratitude of the Hofstra Community to all servicemen and women, as well as the families who support them. The game will be presented by Capital One Bank, which is providing a free Hofstra Pride T-shirt to all fans who make a donation to the WWP.

Complimentary tickets will be given to WWP Alumni and their family members so that they can attend the game. Activities have been arranged for the lead-up to the clash, including live music from Slingshot, a photo booth, the Hofstra Bounce House, and lots of giveaways.

Although the April 13 game is expected to be a sell-out, local printing services may well be required to promote the game and the WWP, which has eight offices across the U.S., including New York. The aim of the project is to raise awareness of the needs of service men and women who have been injured.
