Men's lacrosse raises funds for hurricane relief efforts

Denison Men's lacrosse

GRANVILLE, Ohio-- In the past weeks, both Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma had a significant impact on the southern United States and beyond, causing billions of dollars of damages and costing dozens of lives. This past week, the Denison Men's Lacrosse team joined the relief efforts to help those in need.

Led by Head Coach Mike Caravana, the team walked around various points on campus, collecting funds from students willing to help the cause. In the end, the team raised a total of $1,020, all of which will be given to the American Red Cross. Each of the four senior lacrosse captains shared their thoughts on the successful campaign:

"This year with the hurricanes impacting so many different people and causing so much destruction, we thought that raising money for the relief fund would be perfect. All the guys thought it was a great idea and loved the chance to try and do their part", said Liam Burman.

Said Josh Happ, "It's important for athletes to give back and give back to the community that supports them so much."

The team was greatly appreciative of the help they received from Denison students to collect funds. Burman said "The Denison community responded great People were so nice and willing to give, and not just extra coins, but cash if they had it. Everyone was incredibly generous and very nice to talk with." Happ added, "The captains collected in the senior apartments and we were genuinely shocked to see how generous people were with donations."

Senior Captain Ben Duhoski was literally hit quite close to home by Hurricane Irma, as his family recently moved to St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands. Fortunately, his home and family both safely endured the storm, but he doesn't want the relief efforts to stop with just the men's lacrosse team. "With Hurricane Maria set to hit the USVI's on Wednesday, I would encourage other teams and organizations to help raise money for the cause."
