SHREVEPORT, La. – The American Cancer Society Making Strides of Shreveport held their annual walk on the campus of LSU Shreveport this past Saturday where they raise money for the fight against breast cancer. But with any big event a lot of work is done on the day prior and there to lend several helping hands was the LSUS baseball team who set up all of the tables and tents for the event on a cool afternoon that included plenty of rain.
Rachel Stern who is the Community Manager and Special Events Coordinator for the American Cancer Society was very appreciative of the support from the LSUS baseball team, "The baseball team was a huge help in setting up our Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. The whole team came out to help set up tents, tables and chairs."
LSUS baseball head coach Al Cantwell says that helping for special events on campus is a priority for his team, "Any time we have an opportunity to help on campus with an event, we want to be there. We want to help make a difference with campus life here at LSUS. Community outreach is so important, but most important is helping the reason why we are here, which is LSUS. The guys did an outstanding job of showing up in the rain and having some fun while working for a tremendous cause in the American Cancer Society. We hope they (American Cancer Society) want to come back and do it on campus again next year!"
