St. John's in the Community

Being a student-athlete at St. John's represents more than just commitment to a sport. With over 2,500 service hours performed, dedication also means serving the needy through faith and action.


Every September, the St. John's men's and women's basketball programs host Dribble for the Cure, an event that raised more than $100,000 for the Pediatric Cancer Research Fund in 2015.  To donate to PCRF, click here.

The St. John's baseball team takes time out of its busy schedule every year to working with League of YES, which provides the opportunity for children with special needs to play baseball.

The St. John's softball team undertakes a number of community service efforts, including the Annual Red Storm 5K Run/Walk.

Many teams, including volleyball, are consistent supporters of St. John's Bread & Life, a soup kitchen run by the University in Brooklyn.

On University Service Day in 2015, the St. John's Track & Field and Cross Country teams hosted a clinic for special needs individuals in Carnesecca Arena.

The St. John's lacrosse team is also an ardent supporter of The League OF YES, helping children with physical disabilites know the joy of sports.
