From the RR Newsroom: Cal Bestows Hall of Fame Service Award on Jill Costello
It was announced today that former Cal coxswain and Pac-10 Champion Jill Costello is the most recent recipient of the Hall of Fame Service Award for her efforts to raise awareness and funding for research for lung cancer. Her legacy is stronger than ever, as the work that she started with the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation continues in her honor, having already raised hundreds of thousands of dollars through the 'Jog for Jill' series. The next events in the 5K 'Jog for Jill' series will be held at Tulsa University (9/18/2011) and Cornell University (9/25/2011), with an event in October as well, hosted by the University of Washington.
