BENEFITING: One Love Foundation in honor of Yeardley Love
Quinnipiac Field Hockey is committed to running Yards for Yeardley during the field hockey season this year! In May of 2010, Yeardley Love, a women's lacrosse player at University of Virginia and Bethesda area native was beaten to death by her ex-boyfriend. Her story touched thousands, bringing light to the growingly serious issue of relationship abuse. The Yards for Yeardley project works to empower communities, especially young female athletes, to speak up and speak out against relationship abuse. The One Love Foundation encourages teams to walk, run, or sprint yards to raise awareness for relationship abuse. During each of our ten home games below, we will track our Yards for Yeardley.
September 1, 3, 8, 17, 22, 24 and 29th.
October 8, 20 and 27th.
Please join us in raising awareness for relationship abuse by attending one of our games and suport this worthy cause, any donation is appreciated!
