The Tigers hosted their third annual "Collegians for the Cure 5K" last weekend, which was held to raise money in the fight against cancer. Organized and run by the Princeton women's swimming and diving team, the 5K raised more than $1,700 and included more than 100 participants. The team reaches out to athletic teams at both Princeton and other nearby campuses, and it received support in both areas.
“I am very proud of our association with the movement to cure cancer and create awareness," said head coach Susan Teeter, who has led the Princeton women's swimming and diving team to nine Ivy League titles in the last 11 years. "This team has done a tremendous job building this project. We are thankful to all the athletic teams who supported us and ran, including the men’s swimming at TCNJ, the Princeton men's and women's volleyball teams, the women’s water polo team and the women’s softball team.
"We hope to continue to build this run/walk each year and include more of the Princeton community, as well as expand to other college campuses. Our team has unfortunately suffered some real losses to cancer. We also celebrate our cancer survivors within the Princeton family. This is a great way to honor all of these people.”
