UMaine Student-Athletes Host Bone Marrow Drive, WLBZ, WABI Report

WLBZ (Channel 2) and WABI (Channel 5) reported on the University of Maine football team hosting its seventh bone marrow drive. The drive is part of “Be the Match,” a national organization that works to save lives through transplants, and is held in honor of Jeff Cole, a former UMaine assistant football coach who died of cancer in 2004, according to the WLBZ report. The Maine women’s basketball and soccer teams also volunteered at the drive. Jack Cosgrove, head coach of the football team, told WLBZ it’s invigorating to know their efforts could save a life. Noelle Leon-Palmer, a member of the women’s soccer team, told WABI she believes student-athletes have an influence on other students, and the drive is a great way to encourage others to do something positive.
