Mercy College Well Represented at Susan Komen Race in NYC
NEW YORK, N.Y. - On Sunday, Mercy College
Athletics represented quite well in the 2011 Susan Komen Greater
NYC Race for the Cure event at Central Park in Manhattan, N.Y.
Several members from the Mercy women’s basketball, field hockey and softball teams supported and volunteered along the race route. They helped Head Women’s Basketball Coach Kelli Dunlay and Head Athletic Trainer Meredith Pope run the three-mile long event. Pope crossed the finish line at 31:34, while Dunlay did the same at 39:38.
"The Race for the Cure is a wonderful event that supports a great organization. This is the first race that I have ever competed in and I absolutely loved it. We had a great showing of Mercy Mavericks lining the course that were great encouragement as I got to the middle and felt like slowing down a bit," Pope said. "So many women in our country alone are affected by breast cancer, and events like this and the support of this great organization brings us one step closer to finding a cure for something that affects so many lives. Go Mavs!"
