On Sunday September 12, 2010, members of the Iona College men's and women's water polo team attended the Race the Hudson at Kingsland Point Park in Sleepy Hollow, NY. The Race the Hudson is to benefit MAC Angels, whose mission is to provide resources, guidance and information to ALS patients and their family networks on surviving ALS with the highest quality of life possible. The mission of MAC Angels is to support programs that enhance the quality of life and survivorship of patients, family members and caregivers who are impacted by ALS, as well as to address the needs that are not being met by other ALS programs.
Members of the water polo team greeted the swimmers and directed them towards the registration tables. They also helped direct the buses that brought the swimmers to the three mile starting point. At the completion of the race they helped hand out medals and congratulate the participants on their achievement. The team had a lot of fun volunteering and the ALS group really appreciated the help. It was amazing to watch the amount of people finish the race for such a good cause.
