Women’s Lacrosse and Women’s Basketball Teams Set to Run Race for Hardy Girls Healthy Women


Colby women’s lacrosse and Colby women’s basketball teams are teaming up to run the Freaky 5K Fun Run in Waterville, ME on October 27th. This race is sponsored by Hardy Girls Healthy Women. The event aims to provide an example for women of all ages, but specifically younger girls that Halloween costumes are supposed to be scary and fun, and not demeaning and stereotypical. Both the women’s basketball and women’s lacrosse teams will run this event in hopes of providing a strong and powerful message to younger girls. Better yet, the teams aim to promote this message whilst embodying a healthy and active lifestyle by running the road race. Come cheer on your Mules running in full costume on Saturday, October 27th.
