East Meadow, N.Y. – On Sunday, the LIU Post women’s lacrosse team stepped away from the field, and participated in the 20th-annual Walk-Along for Lupus at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow, N.Y. The event raised over $200,000, in the hopes of finding a cure for the disease.
“Lupus has affected so many of our families here at LIU Post,” said Head Coach Meghan McNamara. “We want to do everything we can to help support Lupus awareness. It was a great honor to be able to walk on Sunday for the cause.”
Located in Bellmore, N.Y., the Lupus Alliance of Long Island/Queens continuously searches for a cure and cause for Lupus, while helping those with it live better lives while they wait for the cure.
