Lauren Giddings Hit-A-Ton and Memorial Walk

Lauren Giddings Hit-A-Ton and Memorial Walk

DECATUR, Ga. - Agnes Scott College will once again honor the memory of former softball player Lauren Giddings, with a Memorial Walk and Hit-A-Thon planned on the campus for April 9, 2016. Giddings was a four-year member of the team, graduating in 2009.  In 2011, she lost her life just after graduating from Mercer Law School.

The Memorial Walk will be held on the Agnes Scott campus, starting at the north loop of campus at 9:00 a.m.  For more information on the walk, please contact Rosemary Davis at  Donations to the memorial walk will help in establishing a scholarship in Lauren's honor.

The Hit-A-Thon, which will take place on the soccer field at Agnes Scott, begins at 11:00 a.m. Participants will be able to take a certain number of pitches from the Scottie players and staff, and accumulate points toward prizes.  There will also be a raffle at the event.  As with the memorial walk, all proceeds will benefit the Lauren Giddings Memorial Scholarship.  For information on how to take part in the Hit-A-Thon, please see the attached flyer for details on how to go about signing up for the event.  Donations can also be made on the website for the scholarship fund.
