URGENT: WE'RE ASKING FOR YOUR HELP AND SUPPORT! For six straight months, Fordham's Women's Basketball team has defied many odds to maintain a healthy and safe bubble to be able to compete in the Atlantic10. With 1,400 negative tests, ZERO positive results, trials of isolation from family and friends during holidays, and a consistent commitment to Fordham University's Covid-19 health policies, our program has a proven record to safely finish the remainder of our season. The one part of our lives that remained a glimmer of hope in a world that fuels too much hate and not enough love has been our family, our team. There is something bigger being fought here, it's a chance to move forward, reach the culmination of all of our work and allow our passions to be fully expressed through our sport. There must come a time to begin living in this age with strong faith and ample caution.

We are asking Father McShane to allow us to play these final weeks of our season on the road. We have trusted our University and now we are asking you to trust us now. With our backs against the wall, we are asking for Fordham Administration to not walk away from us now. We have an incredibly strong travel plan, Doctor's approvals, and funding plan that we have prepared to make our reality. We have agreed to sign any waiver that removes University liability from our team!

This petition is to never disregard any other academic or athletic programs on campus that have also been affected by the two-week shutdown. We simply believe the credentials we have achieved as a team for over six months affords us a special opportunity given the pressing deadline of our season. It has absolutely broken our hearts to have given everything to our University and administration for the past six months, only to see it all stripped from us for reasons we have absolutely no control over. 

The players of Fordham Women's Basketball understand the gravity of this situation and are confident that our support would be reciprocated to any other program within the Fordham Community.
