STONY BROOK, N.Y. (Oct. 20, 2014) – On Sunday, the LIU Post field hockey team stepped away from the field to participate in the Take Steps Walk For Crohn’s Disease and Colitis at Stony Brook University.
The Pioneers raised $200 for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America, whose mission is to cure Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, while improving the quality of life for children and adults affected by these diseases.
“Having the field hockey team participate in the Taking Steps Walk for Crohn’s means a lot to me and my family,” said Head Coach Raenee Savin (Nesconset, N.Y.). “My husband, Andy, who has deep roots here at LIU Post, had suffered from Crohn’s since he was 14. Three surgeries later, and another on the way, we do anything we can to help find a cure for this disease. It’s great to have my field hockey family supporting my personal family.”
