Muskies to Raise Money for Sandy Hook Elementary Victims
Cincinnati, OH (FOX19) - For Saturday's game against Wofford the Xavier Muskateers wore green and white uniforms with the words "Sandy Hook" on the front. Players found out just minutes before game time they would be wearing the alternate jerseys in honor of the lives lost in last week's school shooting in Connecticut.
"As a father of first and second grade girls, I have been deeply impacted by
the senseless killings in Newtown, Connecticut, just over a week ago," said
Xavier head coach Chris Mack. "I cannot possibly imagine how the families are coping with their loss
during this Christmas season.
"Today's small gesture is to help support those families that have been
directly affected. Our Sandy Hook jerseys are worn today to honor those 20
precious, little children and the six adults who fought to protect them. I ask
that you consider bidding on a game-worn jersey or making a donation. All money
raised will benefit the Sandy Hook School Support Fund to help the grieving
families directly. Thank you for your effort Xavier fans and everyone willing to
assist in the effort."
The game worn jerseys and shorts will be auctioned at GoXavier.com through
Friday, January 4, 2013. Proceeds from the auction will benefit the Sandy Hook
School Support Fund.
