LIU POST AND MOLLOY MEN’S LACROSSE TEAM UP TO RAISE $8,200 FOR WINTHROP’S CANCER CENTER FOR KIDS


Pictured with CCFK patient Connor Bradley at a special check presentation held recently in his honor are (l.-r.) Ashley Carlo, Development Specialist at Winthrop’s CCFK; Sal Geneva, Molloy Men’s Lacrosse; Kyle Frenger, Molloy Men’s Lacrosse; Peter Clark, Molloy Men’s Lacrosse; Eric Petrullo, Head Coach, Molloy Men’s Lacrosse; Okie Bernubo, LIU Post Men’s Lacrosse; Mark Weinblatt, MD, Chief of the Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at Winthrop and Director of the CCFK; Billy Deignan, LIU Post Men’s Lacrosse; Tim Bradley, LIU Post Men’s Lacrosse; Steve Gruse, LIU Post Men’s Lacrosse; Kim Krupa, Certified Child Life Specialist (CCLS) at the CCFK; and Ryan Carroll, LIU Post Men’s Lacrosse.
Clad in his own LIU Post Lacrosse jersey, five-year-old Connor Bradley was made honorary captain as the LIU Post Pioneers took the field in a Men’s Lacrosse home game against Molloy College’s Lions on April 27, 2013. Dubbed “Team Connor Day,” the stands were brimming with Connor’s friends, neighbors and family who helped raise $8,200 for the Cancer Center for Kids at Winthrop-University Hospital. Donations were collected through the sale of raffles and “Team Connor” bracelets, in addition to contributions that were made in lieu of admission to the game.

As any good Team Captain would, Connor led his team – the LIU Post Pioneers – to victory, in a thrilling game that ended in a 15-11 win for the Pioneers. Connor also engaged his team in a post-game congratulatory line, where members from both Men’s Lacrosse teams recognized each other’s efforts with acknowledgements of high-fives. Connor’s sense of true sportsmanship was also praised by members of both teams as they proudly chanted his name – a truly heart-warming moment to behold.
