10/13/2012- On Saturday 30+ members of the Men's Rugby team were sure to be present and visible at the Jog For Jill. The nation wide movement brings awareness to lung cancer, and has close ties to the Bay Area and Saint Mary's. Members of the current rugby team attended high school with Jill, who is best known for leading the California Golden Bears crew as varsity coxswain while fighting against stage IV lung cancer.
One of our rugby players, Jordan Bouey, commented on the jog saying, "It felt good to be productive on Saturday morning with good friends to support a good cause. We have alot of respect for this movement," explains Bouey. "We wanted support the cause and the community today, in honor of Jill, and the community of rowers who are out here today with us."
