Bulldog Wrestling Participates in the Komen Lowcountry Race for the Cure
Daniel Island, S.C. – Members of The Citadel wrestling team and coaching staff laced up their running shoes on Saturday to participate in the 19th-Annual Komen Lowcountry Race for the Cure 5k at the Family Circle Cup on Daniel Island, S.C.
"This is an important cause for the wrestling program and its team members and coaches," said head coach Rob Hjerling. "Most of us have a friend or family member that has been affected by breast cancer so it feels good to be able to give back to the community and show our support for the cure."
The Citadel, who opens up its 2012-13 slate this weekend in its yearly Blue/White match, collected donations and ran as a team to help promote breast cancer awareness in the Lowcountry.
"It is always great to get the team together to do something to help a great cause," said associate head coach Jeff Ragan. "This is something that we believe in and we continue to participate in the Komen Lowcountry Race for the Cure as a team every year."
The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series is the largest series of 5K run/fitness walks in the world. You can run or walk the 5K route, with a team or as an individual.
