BALTIMORE - Loyola University Maryland men's lacrosse will play two scrimmages Sunday, Oct. 5, in the 2014 Play for Parkinson's Fall Lacrosse event at Episcopal High School in Alexandria, Virginia.

The Greyhounds open the event with a 1 o'clock game against Princeton University, and they will then take on the U.S. Air Force Academy at 3 o'clock. Towson University will also participate in the event and play Air Force at 1 p.m., Princeton at 3 p.m.

"This is a terrific event to raise money for a great cause," said Loyola Head Coach Charley Toomey. "We are looking forward to facing Princeton and Air Force in an environment that will help prepare us for the spring."

Over the last four years, the ProjectSpark Foundation has raised over $200,000 for the fight against Parkinson's disease through the fall lacrosse series. Tickets for the event are $20 for adults and $10 for youth 5-16 years of age. Children five an under are free. For more information, visit PlayForParkinsons.org.
