Princeton lacrosse coach helps build medical facility in Ghana in honor of late wife
There are more important things in life than simple wins and losses. Making the world a better place serves a greater purpose:

“She was a wonderful soul,’’ Bates said of his wife. “She was just a very giving, loving person. I thought a children’s hospital would be a neat project to support and a legacy for her. We’ve raised a lot of money, which is testament to who she was.

“I did some pouring of cement. I mean, what could I bring to the table?’’ he said with a laugh. “What I realized there was that this was a long-term project; not just one year and then be out of there. I already promised my son we’ll return. And doctors have committed to go back."
