DURHAM, N.H. - The University of New Hampshire women’s lacrosse team supported a fundraising event benefiting the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) on Saturday, October 5.
Hosted by Phi Mu Delta and Army ROTC, the women’s lacrosse team provided the event with its own “Tough Mudder” obstacle course, including push ups, sit ups, tire flips, speed ladders, hurdles and more.
Founded to honor and empower the brave men and women who have served in the U.S. armed forces, the WWP helps veterans with both the physical and emotional wounds of war. The foundation serves over 35,000 veterans, providing several beneficial programs that support the mind, body and economic status, as well as helping veterans stay in touch with fellow service members.
Entry was $5 for a single person or $20 for a team. Participants gathered at the event on Boulder Field with all proceeds going directly to Wounded Warrior Project.
