Rafael Suanes- US PRESSWIRE

The Towson men’s basketball team is hosting it’s second-annual “Tiger Fun Run” on Thursday, Oct. 11 to raise money for autism.  The event will take place on the Towson campus and is open to the community.

“Tiger Fun Run” features a road run by the players and coaching staff around the campus.  Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to join the team in the run.

Proceeds from the event are given to the Kennedy Krieger Institute for Autism Research and the Center for Adults with Autism on Towson’s campus.  The institute’s mission is to help children with disorders of the brain, spinal cord and musculoskeletal system achieve their potential in all aspects of life.  This includes research, special education and patient care.

Last year’s event was a success.  The participants included Deputy Director of Athletics Devin Crosby, Assistant Director of Development/Operations Lindsay Peck, staff members of both the women’s basketball and gymnastics team along with other Towson personnel.  Members of the basketball team and the coaching staff were available for a meet and greet following the run, which began and ended at the Towson Center.

This year the event will start and end at the same location at 2 p.m. and the team will again be available for meet-and-greets after the run is completed.

“It’s for a great cause that promotes visibility and awareness on campus,” said Towson head coach Pat Skerry.  “It helps connect us to the campus and the community.”

Those interested in coming out are asked to make a minimum of $10 prior to the beginning of the race.  The first 30 people to sign up will receive commemorative shirts.
