It's 8pm and Damie Danseglio from men's lacrosse is the first rider and Danseglio wrote the first blog of the event.

At the strike of 8 o'clock, I felt very fortunate to start off something truly great; Cardio for a Cause. For a short time, it felt awesome to be a part, as well as to think that all the other Detroit Athletes and coaches from the lacrosse team, to softball, track and field, the basketball teams, and to the rest of Athletics. We'll be on a bike for 24 hours straight throughout the night leading into Tuesday morning, The important thing to remember above all, we're not doing this for ourselves or self-satisfaction, but we do this to raise hope and awareness for the ones that wish and dream to take on challenges and tasks at full strength, like we do 24/7. Faith and Focus leads the way.

Still going strong at 10pm. Sarah Martinez checks in after her ride.

This is my fourth and final time :( that I will be participating in Cardio for a Cause. I really like that the Detroit Titans put on this yearly event. I really feel that it helps out many and it is also fun participating with fellow teammates and having fun while biking for ten minutes.

More from men's lacrosse as time continues to pass.

It feels great to know that taking such a short break from my day can be put to good use with Cardio for a Cause and that the Detroit Titan family can come together and keep the bike going for 24 hours.

Cardio for a Cause is a great way to raise awareness through a school as well as through a community because it brings the two together for a greater cause.  Cardio for a Cause has brought UDM closer to its community which as stated in our school mission statement is exactly what we try to do here. 

-Alex Wesche, Men’s Cross-Country/Track and Field

This is my third year participating in Cardio for a Cause, and it still feels just as great as the first time to be a part of something greater than my sport by just taking 10 minutes out of my night. It brings the Titan family closer together to achieve something for a greater good, and it’s something I’m proud to be a part of.

-Julia Fernandes, Women’s Tennis

Cardio for a Cause is a great way to keep our student athletes active outside of their main sport and for just 10 minutes of our day, it is great to know that we are helping others from this charity and bringing the Titan family even closer together. Keep on pedaling!

-Troy Dennis, Men’s Lacrosse
