RUSTON - This past Sunday the Louisiana Tech soccer team hosted an Easter egg hunt for the local community on campus for their continued `Relay for Life' fundraising campaign.
Donations were taken throughout the day as lots of children in different age groups took part in the traditional egg hunt on the campus quad.
"[Freshman midfielder] Keely Davis has been the main organizer for the team with our fundraising efforts," said head coach Kevin Sherry. "Communities across the globe come together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost and fight back against a disease that has already taken too much.
"Keely has been great in helping to grow awareness for the cause and always stresses that the funds raised truly do make a different in the fight against cancer."
Kids also took part in face painting and participated in other fun activities like water balloon toss, guessing games and soccer scrimmages.
The team also raised money for `Relay for Life' during its annual Soccer Fun Fest the weekend before and have further events planned to raise additional proceeds.
"I am so very proud of the team in the way they help the community and raise funds for various charitable causes," said Sherry.
Relay for Life is the main volunteer-driven cancer fundraising of the American Cancer Society.
