FIELD HOCKEY AND LACROSSE TEAMING WITH
CHRISTOPHER MARTINS TO BENEFIT CHILDREN
The Eastern Connecticut State University field hockey and women’s lacrosse programs will be participating in the 23rd Annual Christopher Martins Christmas Run for Children 5K by coordinating a toy drive for underprivileged children.
Anyone wishing to contribute can bring a new, unwrapped toy to the Eastern men’s and women’s basketball doubleheader this Saturday afternoon, Dec. 8, or drop off a toy to Office 234 in the Eastern Sports Center prior to Dec. 9. The race will be held this Sunday, Dec. 9 at 10 a.m. and begins at Christopher Martins Restaurant on State Street in New Haven, with the donation of a toy serving as the entry fee. For more information, contact head field hockey and lacrosse coach Christine Hutchison at 860-465-4333 or visit http://www.jbsports.com/cmchrisrun.htm
The charity event is the second one sponsored by an Eastern intercollegiate team this year. In October, the volleyball program raised $505.00 in conjunction with its annual Crabtree Classic volleyball tournament as part of Lee National Denim Day. The proceeds benefited the National Breast Cancer Coalition Fund for breast cancer research.
