Both teams as well as coaches Stanford, LoRusso, O'Rourke and Richards were committed to the cause and thrilled to be able to successfully "pay it forward".
The Tappan Zee Varsity Cross Country team participated in the Nyack Hospital Be Healthy 5K Run to support breast cancer awareness and donated $250 to help support breast cancer awareness and provide for underprivileged women in Rockland County.
As a result of their commitment, the team won the $250 attendance incentive award for the race. When notified of the award, Coach Driscoll, after a conference with all involved, responded by saying, "All of the athletes from the Tappan Zee Boys and Girls Cross Country teams really enjoyed participating in the 5k," Coach Driscoll said, "We would definitely like to make this a yearly tradition with our team."
