PISCATAWAY, N.J. (April 3, 2013) – The Rutgers women’s lacrosse team, in conjunction with the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation, welcomes little sister Genna Camiolo on Sunday, April 7 when the squad takes on Syracuse at Yurcak Field at 1 p.m.
Donations will be accepted at the gate, with all proceeds going to support Friends of Jaclyn (www.friendsofjaclyn.org) and families affected by pediatric brain tumors.
The Scarlet Knights’ little sister, Genna Camiolo, will be involved in the coin toss and the RU starting lineup, and will watch the game from the sideline. The squad became involved with the organization in 2008 after adopting Genna, who suffers from pediatric brain tumors. Genna’s sister Rosie is also a friend of the Rutgers program.
Friends of Jaclyn is a charitable organization, dedicated to raising public awareness regarding pediatric brain tumors. Funds will be used to improve the quality of life for children who are afflicted with a brain tumor, as well as donating contributions to pediatric brain tumor research. FOJ currently supports 382 adopted children in 41 states.
This will be the fifth season that Genna has served as a honorary captain. The women’s lacrosse staff and players have engaged in a number of events to help support Genna, including the Unite Half Marathon last April.
