From Press Release
The Ursinus Men’s Lacrosse team, in partnership with We Are One 365, will be honoring the sacrifices of our military and their families on Saturday when it hosts McDaniel College at Patterson Field. The game is scheduled for a 3 p.m. start.
The Bears will be the first to participate in the 365 Game Day Program and will be wearing the 365 team shirts for warm ups. We Are One 365’s mission is to raise awareness for the daily sacrifice made by our military and to support military families in need.
“The Ursinus Men’s Lacrosse players have come together as a team to make the We Are One 365 pledge. They are the first college team to make the pledge and we are proud to have them sport our gear,” said Matthew Wood, CEO and Founder of WAO 365.
Men’s Lacrosse has participated in several ways so far this year:
1. “Making the Pledge” to wear the 365 shirts once per week for a team workout to raise awareness and show their support for the sacrifices of our military and their families.
2. 100% of the money raised from shirt sales was donated to a family in Oxford, Maine. The father of the family was killed in action while serving in Iraq as part of the 41st Field Artillery Regiment. In honor of their sacrifice, the team and WAO 365 donated $500 in supermarket gift cards to alleviate some of the monthly financial burden on the family.
