The women's lacrosse team will be collecting donations for Reese Walker, a 13-year-old from Fayetteville, North Carolina as SU takes on the WildCats in the Hornets penultimate game of the regular season.
Walker is a member of the Carolina Flight club lacrosse team, the same club that produced freshman attack Nikki Zerna. She was recently diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer.
The seventh grader is currently undergoing chemotherapy and is scheduled for her sixth round of that treatment on Wednesday.
On that same day, women's lax will be collecting donations to offset the costs of Walker's treatment for the disease. The women started the collection process last week during the men's lacrosse contest versus Washington and Lee and will continue to collect donations at a table in Brandt Student Center on Tuesday.
All of the donations are earmarked to offset the costs of Walker's treatment for Ewing's Sarcoma.
"We are very happy to be able to help a member of the lacrosse community during this difficult time," head coach Lindsey Lutz said. "I know her club coach very well and everybody loves Reese. This is a great cause for us to support and 'We Ride with Reese.'"
