On April 10, the Saint Michael’s College women’s lacrosse team took on Franklin Pierce. At half time, the Hope Happens Here organization held its fourth annual Pie a Purple Knight fundraiser that helps raise money to have speakers and run more events. Hope Happens Here holds mental health awareness games for numerous men’s and women’s sports teams.

Hope Happens Here promotes mental health awareness and mental well-being among college students, in particular student-athletes, and helps educates people about available resources.

Now in its fourth school year as an organization on campus, Hope Happens Here has spread the word to end the stigma for multiple colleges in the Northeast 10 Division and beyond.
