Belmont lacrosse girls' success goes beyond playing field

How does a team follow up a successful 2013 season? After posting a 9-3-1 record, one might expect a team to sit back, take it easy and reflect on their accomplishments.
Instead, the Belmont High School girls' lacrosse team headed down to the State House in Concord for the Best Buddies Friendship Walk and 5K. The Friendship Walk plays a fundamental role in funding state programs which provide one-to-one friendships, leadership development and integrated job opportunities for individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.
The girls donated their time, money, and spirit at the New Hampshire Best Buddies fundraiser in Concord. The team helped raise $1,200 for the charity and comprised more than half of the volunteers that worked the event. Because of their outstanding volunteerism, the event was a great success and raised a total of $60,000 to help the Best Buddies Organization.
