Hempstead, NY --On October 19 at Jones Beach State Park, the Hofstra Softball and Women's Lacrosse teams participated in the 2008 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk.  The five-mile walk helped to raise funds to fight breast cancer and also provided inspiration to people who are fighting this disease or who have gone through it.

The teams raised $360 to support the American Cancer Society, and in total the day has raised three million dollars to date.Hofstra Women's Lacrosse

In addition, at tomorrow's football game versus Delaware (3 p.m. - James M. Shuart Stadium), Hofstra's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) will assist in raising more funds by selling specially designed Hofstra Pride t-shirts.

One dollar per ticket of game day sales as well as 100% of the revenue generated from the sale of the t-shirts will support the American Cancer Society.
