RMU/Duquesne Host Lacrosse for Hope Sunday

Moon Township, Pa. Robert Morris will kick off its month-long fund-raising effort this Sunday, when the Colonials join the Duquesne in hosting the Sixth Annual Pittsburgh Lacrosse for Hope event at Joe Walton Stadium. All fund-raising from Sunday's event will go directly towards the Huntington's Disease Society of America, Western Pennsylvania Chapter.

The schedule for the event can be found on the Fall Ball page.

"Pittsburgh Lacrosse for Hope has become a great fall tradition for our team," RMU head women's lacrosse coach Katy Phillips, whose mother suffers from Huntington's disease, said. "The event showcases competitive Division I lacrosse in the Pittsburgh area, and it gives us the chance to launch our fundraising campaign to support Huntington's, a disease that has seriously affected my family."

The six-team event features some of the top programs in the area including the Colonials, who will host the event for the fifth-straight year. Joining Robert Morris and Duquesne for this year's event will be Pitt, Grand Valley, Detroit and Canisius. Sunday's benefit will feature nine games starting at 9 a.m. and running until the final game of the day begins at 5:00 p.m. A full schedule of the day is listed below. Game formatting will feature two 30 minute halves with a running clock. Charitable donations will be accepted throughout the day.
