On Tuesday afternoon the Miami University football team completed its second practice of the spring. After practice it celebrated something much more important.

Liam Kaufman and Quintin Richardson, honorary members of the football team, visited the RedHawks to share some incredible news. Quintin announced that after two years of treatment he was cancer free and Liam, battling cancer for nearly four years, has just five weeks of treatment to go before he is completely cleared.

Following practice, the football team participated in the #LemonsForLeukemia Challenge to help generate awareness for bone marrow donors on the national Be The Match Registry. Miami football also challenged the Miami softball program and Northern Illinois football to the #LemonsForLeukemia Challenge.
