On Saturday, The University of Scranton softball team will host a key Landmark Conference doubleheader at Magis Field against Catholic beginning at 1 p.m. But, it will also serve as a time to acknowledge and raise money for Brain Injury Awareness.
With March being Brain Injury Awareness month, the Royals will be wearing green bows throughout both games, and will be selling bracelets in between games one and two of the doubleheader with the visiting Cardinals.
Throughout the games, collections will also be taken up throughout the stands at Magis Field, with all money collected being donated to the Brain Injury Association of America.
The Royals will also honor the memory of sophomore Meaghan Dowdell's (Parlin, N.J./Old Bridge) father Bryan Patrick Dowdell, who passed away last December as a result of a traumatic brain injury.
The theme for Brain Injury Awareness Month is "Change Your Mind", which provides a platform for educating the general public about the incidence of brain injury and the needs of people with brain injuries and their families. The campaign also lends itself to outreach within the brain injury community to de-stigmatize the injury, empower those who have survived, and promote the many types of support that are available.
