CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. (May 17, 2014) – In addition to winning the ECC Commissioner’s Cup, LIU Post was named the recipient of the 2014 ECC Cares Award. The accolade is given to the school that raises the most money per student-athlete for collective causes in an academic year.
The Pioneer family collected just under $20,000 for causes in 2013-14. They participated in a number of fundraisers, including the Women’s Achievers Breakfast, Relay For Life, Coaches vs. Cancer and Wounded Warrior Project. On Apr. 5, the LIU Post men’s lacrosse team brought in over $5,000 for the Cancer Center for Kids at Winthrop University Hospital, as part of its “Team Connor” initiative.
