(ANGOLA) - The Trine men's lacrosse team helped out a local family this past Saturday. The team volunteered for Jon Seeman and Kelly Butler, whose daughter, Brooklyn, is affected with Rett Syndrome and son, Boston, is affected with Down Syndrome.
The student-athletes helped make the home more accessible for the children and performed other household tasks for the family. The work performed will help make the home a better environment for each of the children and be a big boost to the family.
The highlight of the day came when the team presented Brooklyn and Boston with signed Trine lacrosse jerseys . The team even serenaded Brooklyn with some One Direction tunes, one of her favorite bands.
The team also signed cards for Girl Power 2 Cure, a foundation dedicated to raising awareness and funds for treatments and a cure for Rett Syndrome.
The Thunder lacrosse team is in the early stages of planning a benefit game for Rett Syndrome next spring.
