RENSSELAER, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Local athletes came together on Sunday to help raise money for men and women in service.
The Siena men’s lacrosse team faced off with six other teams at a scrimmage at RPI for the fourth annual ‘Faceoff for a Cause.’
The scrimmage was held to raise money for the ‘Wounded Warrior Project,’ a non-profit organization that is dedicated to helping injured service members.
“A lot of my former players are serving this country very well, and some of them have been harmed and lost limbs and lost those kind of things so, I think it is our responsibility as coaches to not only coach lacrosse, but to have our guys understand that there are veterans out there that need our service,” said Mike Murphy, Organizer and Men’s Lacrosse Head Coach at Colgate University.
Over the last three years, the event has raised over $50,000.
