Around the World for Yeardley Awareness Walk to be held Wednesday
Registration is underway for the Around the World for Yeardley Awareness Walk scheduled for Wed., April 18, on the Fredonia campus.
Spearheaded by the Fredonia Student-Athlete Advisory Council, the Walk — in its second year — will begin at 11 a.m. and end at 7 p.m. on course around Dods and Steele halls. There is no cost to participate and people are invited to walk, run, or rollerblade around the course.
The first 500 people to complete four laps will receive a free T-shirt. With each additional lap, a participant will receive a ticket to use to try to win raffle prizes, including gift cards, basket donations, an autographed Buffalo Bills mini-helmet, and two tickets to a 2018 New York Jets home game.
Around for World for Yeardley walks are scheduled by all SUNYAC schools throughout April as a way to draw attention to relationship violence. It’s the second year conference schools will be teaming with the One Love Foundation, which was organized by family and friends of Yeardley Love, a University of Virginia women’s lacrosse played who was brutally beaten to death by her ex-boyfriend.
SUNYAC schools will engage in a friendly competition to see which of the institutions walk the most miles.
“This event,” said Fredonia senior men’s swimmer and SUNYAC SAAC President Ben Chatley, “is about more than one school competing against another. It is an opportunity for us all to push back against relationship violence on each of our campuses and have us be declared the victors. I am ecstatic to see exactly what the participating schools, especially the SUNYAC, can do throughout this month-long campaign.”
