FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- The Fairfield University men’s lacrosse team will host Marquette University in a scrimmage on Conway Field at Rafferty Stadium on Sunday at 12 p.m., and donations will be collected to aid the fight against Parkinson's disease.

The Stags, who are also hosting a prospect day earlier that morning, will be collecting donations for the ProjectSpark Foundation. Players will wear yellow shooting shirts and socks in recognition of ProjectSpark.

The ProjectSpark Foundation is dedicated to the eradication of Parkinson’s disease in our lifetime, and the amelioration of the effects of the disease for all those directly and indirectly affected by Parkinson’s.

"We look forward to welcoming Coach Amplo and his program to Fairfield University on October 18th," said Copelan, the 2015 CAA Coach of the Year. "Pairing together these two Jesuit institutions at Rafferty Stadium – and supporting a great cause in ProjectSpark – will be a valuable experience for both teams and a great day of lacrosse."
