St. Charles Cos. presented $1,500 in proceeds from the 2013 St. Charles Running Festival.
The funds will support the establishment of a women’s lacrosse team at the College of Southern Maryland.
Due to support from community partners and the CSM Foundation, the college has been able to launch lacrosse at the National Junior College Athletic Association collegiate level in Southern Maryland, with a men’s team set for its season home opener March 9. The CSM Foundation hopes to raise $25,000 to launch the women’s team in spring 2015. St. Charles Cos. offered the proceeds from the running festival, which was also sponsored by Lennar and Chick-fil-A, as a matching donation to support the college’s student athletes during #GivingTuesday in December.
