Men's lacrosse takes part in WellockStrong Capitol Dash

Men's lacrosse takes part in WellockStrong Capitol Dash

WASHINGTON - On Saturday November 17th, over 100 runners participated in the WellockStrong Capitol Dash.  It was a beautiful sunny day on the National Mall where the run took place near the steps of the US Capitol building.  The run was to support Bill Wellock, father of Cardinals Men's Lacrosse sophomore Chris Wellock, who was in a traumatic bicycle accident over the summer.  The members of the Men's Lacrosse team & the Wellock family thank all those who participated and also supported this cause!

Bill Wellock shared his thoughts on the overwhelming amount of support he has received before, during and after the Capitol Dash.  "A heartfelt thank you to all the students, their families and friends for helping to make the WellockStrong Capitol Dash a success. I was truly touched by the unbelievable contributions. Everyone's kindness and generosity is a motivator that strengthens my faith. Thanks for the inspiration! As a parent, I hope that my children can be surrounded by great role models -- like the CUA coaching staff and fellow students who care for others. On behalf of our whole family we know we are blessed by your support."
