Baseball Spearheads ALS Walk

Baseball Spearheads ALS Walk

WINCHESTER, Va. - Numerous members of the Shenandoah University Department of Intercollegiate Athletics gave back to the community this past Saturday in an ALS Walk spearheaded by the baseball team.

The three-mile walk through campus was initiated by Head Baseball Coach Kevin Anderson in honor of his mother-in-law, Sherry Stiles, who passed away from ALS in 2013.

More than 200 walkers, including members of the football, baseball, men's and women's basketball, men's and women's lacrosse, softball and women's tennis teams, participated in the event.

The individuals and teams represented raised approximately $39,500 for the ALS Association, a total that is nearly triple Anderson's original goal when starting the event.

"I just want to thank everyone who came out on Saturday," Anderson said.

"It was a great event and I am so proud that we surpassed our fund-raising goal.

"As everyone knows, this is an awful disease that is far too common. I am just happy that we were able to do our part in helping out the cause. Every little bit helps in fighting ALS and our donations not only will go to research, but for practical items for people who are afflicted with ALS.

"All of our student-athletes should be proud of the work they did on Saturday."
