Softball Players Raise Money For Elizabeth Glaser Foundation

WORCESTER, Mass. – Seven members of the Holy Cross softball team traded in their cleats for dancing shoes on Saturday, Jan. 28 to participate in the first annual Holy Cross Dance Marathon. The event was partnered with the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation to raise money and awareness for those who have been impacted by pediatric AIDS.

Senior Camille Trainor (Worcester, Mass.), juniors Kat Rosenthal (Boston, Mass.) and Sam Fregenti (Melville, N.Y.), sophomores Julia Barrett (Gardner, Mass.), Amber Jones (Manorville, N.Y.) and Sarah Free (Claremont, Calif.) and freshman Cassie Girvalo (Putnam Valley, N.Y.) stayed on their feet from 9:00 p.m. to 9:00 a.m. along with over 100 other Holy Cross students.  The night was full of activities sponsored by various student groups on campus as well as several educational sessions about pediatric AIDS to put the cause into perspective for the student-dancers.

The event helped raise over $20,000 for the Elizabeth Glaser Foundation, nearly reaching the Holy Cross goal of $25,000. If you would like to help support the members of the Holy Cross softball team and all the students who participated in the Holy Cross Dance Marathon, CLICK HERE TO DONATE.
