Identifying And Assisting The Families Of Micro-Preemies


Playing For Preemies Day (02/16/2019)


We have an exciting day lined up on February 16th, 2019! our previous Playing For Preemies events have been games for either the Men’s or Women’s Volleyball team here at Lewis University.

We’re excited to announce that we are extending Playing For Preemies to include the Lewis Men’s and Women’s Basketball teams that day as well!

It’ll be a packed day with the Basketball teams taking on Maryville (Women’s at 1pm, Men at 3pm) and the Men’s Volleyball team taking on Fort Wayne at 7pm. Just like the previous Playing For Preemies events, the Rae Strong Foundation will be taking donations to assist family’s of micro-preemies. We raised over $3,000 last time, and are looking to beat that number! Come join us in a day of raising awareness and assistance to micro-preemies, while cheering on the Lewis teams!

And of course, the Playing For Preemies T-Shirts will be available all day, as well. Check them out HERE.
