Friday, 25 May 2012 00:00NS Vikings Lacrosse Team goalie, Billy Brennan, is running a season-long “Blocked Shots” fundraiser to benefit two charities. Money pledged for every shot he blocks in an officiated game this season will help Brennan raise funds for two important causes: The Spina Bifida Association and the Neo-Natal Intensive Care Unit at New York-Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center.
“I was born with a form of the birth defect Spina Bifida that could have caused me to be paralyzed,” he said. “Thanks to microsurgery on my spinal cord, I have had no adverse effects.”
Brennan has blocked 93 shots, including an amazing 18 in a key victory over Clarke that put the Vikings in reach of a spot in the playoffs. He has already raised $3,900 with a goal of $5,000. Along with increasing awareness for Spina Bifida, Brennan hopes to give something back to the NICU doctors, nurses and staff who not only save lives every day, but gave him a “shot of life on two legs.”
