The student-athletes at SUNY Geneseo have raised $419 for the Teresa House, the local hospice care facility in the Village of Geneseo. Approximately 30 student-athletes will represent their peers on Saturday, September 22, by participating in the Comfort Care Walk, the annual fall fundraiser for the Teresa House.
Student Athletic Advisory Committee (SAAC) Co-Chairs Erin Dewey (women's swimming) and Melissa Graham (women's basketball) will present the donation at the walk.
"We are so very proud of the annual community service efforts put forth by our student-athletes," said George Gagnier, Assistant Athletic Director and staff advisor to the SAAC. "This is the first time we have gone over the $400 mark in our efforts for Teresa House. We are ecstatic about those results and know that these funds will aid a service pillar of our community."
