The Garrett College athletic department recently participated in the Chillin' 4 Charity fundraiser, for the Kay Yow Foundation that raises funds for research, and raises awareness for breast cancer.

To participate in Chillin' 4 Charity you are called out by another athletic department, who passes the buck on to you. If you do not answer the challenge you pay $200 to the Kay Yow Foundation. The Lakers were called out by Brookdale CC, and former Laker athletic director Shawn Noël.

Just before the ice cold water was dumped, the Lakers called out a few other athletic departments to keep the ball rolling including Westmoreland CCC, Cecil College, and Potomac State College of WV.
