Elena Delle Donne SpeakerWNBA star Elena Delle Donne will be speaking at the Lyme Research Alliance’s “Time for Lyme” Gala on April 5 at the Hyatt Regency in Greenwich, Connecticut. Proceeds from the gala will be used to fund research projects at universities and major medical institutions throughout the United States. The event will also serve to award Delle Donne the Star Light Award.

“We are excited that Elena, who is one of the most talked-about women’s basketball players in the country, will be joining us at the Gala to receive this award,” said Ally Hilfiger, event chair. “More than 300,000 people are diagnosed every year with Lyme. By sharing her story and lending her name to LRA’s campaign to fund a cure, Elena will be helping to educate countless Americans about the devastating impact of this disease, including the financial hardships that come with the battle.”

Many people do not know that Delle Donne was diagnosed with Lyme in 2008, and though she knocked it out with 30 days of antibiotics, she knew very little about the illness. Two years later, after suffering a recurrence of the illness Delle Donne became active in LRA’s campaign, fulfilling her commitment to do all she can to raise awareness of the disease and speak to Lyme sufferers.

“Not only are they going through physical and emotional challenges,” said Delle Donne. “But the financial burden it brings to families is enormous. I hope i’ll be able to inspire people to not give up, especially those who are actively battling symptoms. I know how hard of a fight it is.”

Delle Donne received national recognition as a high school basketball star at Ursuline Academy, leading her team to three consecutive state championships in route to being named the number one ranked player in the country. She went on to play volleyball and basketball at the University of Delaware, leading the volleyball team to an NCAA Tournament berth in 2009, and leading the basketball team to a 27-3 overall record in 2010 while leading the nation in scoring with 28.1 points per game. The Chicago Sky selected Delle Donne as the 2nd overall pick in the 2013 WNBA Draft, and after a successful rookie campaign that saw her lead her team to it’s first playoff appearance in franchise history, she was named the 2013 WNBA Rookie of the Year.
