Women's lacrosse heavily involved in community service
Members of the JU women’s lacrosse team and coaching staff have been active in community service, participating in a walk as part of fundraiser for breast cancer awareness last Saturday.
JU head coach Mindy McCord also had her hair cut for Locks of Love, a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis.
McCord donated 10 inches of her hair to the organization and goalie Karli Tobin also participated prior to the start of the school year. The Dolphins also have been engaged in trying to assist local lacrosse programs. Last month, 20 team members volunteered at the JEM Memorial Tournament in Ponte Vedra Beach, helping the Living Crosse Foundation support lacrosse in the southeast while also benefitting the Save Duval County Lacrosse movement.
On Nov. 5, JU assistant coach Sarah Gallion and Dolphins players will be volunteering at the Lighthouse Lacrosse clinic that will also benefit the Duval County lacrosse movement.
“It's great to see our team participating in great causes,” McCord said.
