BOSTON – The Boston University men's lacrosse team volunteered at the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk on Sunday, Oct. 6, at the Hatch Shell on the Charles River Esplanade.
The men's lacrosse squad was among 280 BU student-athletes that volunteered at the event. The Terriers took on various responsibilities at the event which raises more than $3 million each year with over 40,000 walkers participating annually. The team was responsible for registering participants, interacting with the walkers and tracking donations brought in throughout the day.
