OSWEGO – On Saturday, the Oswego State men’s lacrosse team wraps up its fall season with a home scrimmage against Cazenovia College. But, the contest is more than a final test of the semester – it is also a fundraiser for the Wilmot Cancer Institute, located in Rochester.
The Lakers have been doing a fall Green/Gold/Pink Game for about ten years, but this year marks the first time the scrimmage will be against another college; usually the game is an intra-squad scrimmage.
“Now we have two teams raising money before and after the contest,” explained third-year head coach Drew Bezek. “Caz was on board all the way.”
The University of Rochester’s Wilmot Cancer Institute is one of New York’s largest blood and marrow transplant programs and offers clinical trials of new therapies and options that may not be available anywhere else upstate.
In 2015, the Wilmot Cancer Institute provided care for 4,400 patients from across New York State.

Saturday’s contest will begin at 3:30 p.m. at the Oswego State Laker Turf Stadium.
Admission is free.
