Loyola baseball teams up with Komen Race for the Cure

November 6, 2009

The Loyola University New Orleans baseball team assisted with the 13th Annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure that was held on Oct. 25 in New Orleans.

Located in City Park, the Wolfpack assisted with the set up of the event’s post race festivities at the Roosevelt Mall. The event opened with a survivor recognition program prior to a 5K run/walk and a one mile fun run/walk to benefit breast cancer research. Loyola team members erected the stage, booths, tables and chairs at the post race event site.

“Supporting the Komen Race for the Cure brought our team together to help in the community. We were able to lend our muscle and take care of much of the hard work in setting up the post race event location. We were grateful to be able to make a difference in our community,” said junior shortstop Taylor Domengeaux.

Loyola’s participation fell under the university’s commitment to the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics’ Champions of Character program which promotes servant leadership by student athletes and coaches in the community.

“We’re proud to be associated with such a worthwhile cause in the city of New Orleans. It’s important for our guys to participate and make a contribution to those in need. We’re very fortunate to be able to assist in such a great event,” said Loyola head coach Gee Cassard.
