NOTRE DAME, Ind. – The University of Notre Dame men’s lacrosse team on Saturday will travel to Chicago to take part in the Playing for Peace day of service. This is the third straight year the program has teamed up with OWLS Lacrosse for a community service project in the Windy City.
The Playing for Peace initiative uses sport to transcend boundaries and bring people together around issues of peace and justice. The Notre Dame lacrosse program launched the Playing for Peace initiative five years ago and uses it as a platform for all of its community service work.
O.W.L.S (Outreach With Lacrosse & Schools) Lacrosse is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to starting transformative lacrosse programs for inner-city schools and low-income communities.
The University of Notre Dame men’s lacrosse team pursues excellence on and off the field through the three pillars in which the program is built: Character, Culture & Community. These three foundational values guide the promise of the program, which is to provide its student-athletes with the most compelling and enriching experience in all of college athletics. Through academics, competition, service and travel, the program aims to immerse its players in situations that enhance their student-athlete experience to help them become the people, students and teammates they aspire to be.
