The Cal State Stanislaus women’s soccer team raised more than \$1,500 for the American Cancer Society by participating in Relay For Life of Waterford this past weekend.
Led by junior Jade Adamson and Assistant Coach Adrienne Sorenson, the Warriors entered Relay For Life under the team name Megan’s Warriors. The team was named after Waterford resident and Warrior fan Megan Gonzalez.
The Warriors raised money by having friends and family donate to their Relay for Life team. In addition they gathered donations at Spring soccer games against University of Pacific, UC Davis, and Fresno State. During the Relay For Life event the Warriors ran a soccer clinic. Then the players took turns walking the Waterford High School track an hour at a time for 24 hours straight.
“All the credit for the success of this even goes to Jade, Coach Sorenson, and the players on the team,” said head coach Gabriel Bolton. “They really stepped up to support Megan and the American Cancer Society.”
Adamson, a forward from Salt Lake City Utah, was the team captain of Megan’s Warriors. As captain she coordinated the effort on behalf of the women’s team which included numerous Relay For Life meetings in Waterford.
By raising \$1,500 the Warriors earned Bronze Team status.
“Relay was one of the most inspirational events I’ve ever been to,” said Adamson. “Our team was amazing with helping out and being on the track for 24 hours. Best of we all got to help out our sister Megan!”
