For this annual event, the students in the Sports and Entertainment Marketing classes have chosen to raise funds for the family of Leyden alum, Greg Morgan. Morgan graduated from West Leyden in 2008. He worked as a research scientist at the University of Washington State, School of Medicine. When Morgan was diagnosed with Sinonasal Undifferentiated Carcinoma he wanted to return home to be with his family. In order to transport Morgan, a specialized medical flight was needed. This required medical personnel to care for him during the trip, costing $35,000. Event funds raised help to defray this cost. Admission is $3 at door, free with purchase of the $10 shirt purchased prior to the game.
