SEATTLE - (Nov. 6) The Seattle U tennis programs volunteered their time to help with a good cause on Sunday. The teams were at the Winter Pineapple Classic 5k to benefit Leukemia and Lymphoma.
The Winter Pineapple Classic 5k is an obstacle course race that was held at Marymoor Park in Seattle. The obstacle course included climbing tire walls, slip and slide skiing among others. The Tennis teams were stationed along the course to help monitor the event. The proceeds from the event directly benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
"Community service is a pillar of our program," Head Coach Adam Reeb said. "It was cool for both our teams to be involved with such a fun and meaningful event like this. I'm proud of our student-athletes who braved the elements to help out at this event. They are great representatives of the Seattle University community."
The men and women's tennis programs have both finished their fall seasons and will resume play in January.
