HEADstrong Foundation Tour for a Cure
The HEADstrong Foundation Tour for a Cure is a series of lacrosse tournaments that will be held throughout the country. The goal of the tournaments is to provide players with the opportunity to compete in a fun, competitive environment. At the same time, it is our goal that all players will learn about the HEADstrong Foundation and its efforts to raise awareness of blood cancer. All players will be challenged to raise funds to help support those affected by blood cancer or working to eliminate it.
This year's event will be held on September 28-29, 2013 in Chicago, IL. It will features boys and girls High School and Middle School divisions.
If you would like your town to be part of the HEADstrong Foundation Tour for a Cure please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 410.252.5642.
About the HEADstrong Foundation
The HEADstrong Foundation works to advocate, raise funds for and to support those affected by blood cancer or working to eliminate it. HEADstrong Foundation generates funds for blood cancer research, distributes grants and provides assistance to patients and survivors of blood cancer. In addition, HEADstrong Foundation awards scholarships and grants for students with ambitions of entering the medical field. Founder Nick "Head" Colleluori attended Hofstra University where he played lacrosse. While at Hofstra Nick was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. While sick he began counseling other patients and began laying the framework for what would become the HEADstrong Foundation, in an effort to raise cancer awareness and help others and future patients that found themselves in a similar situation. In August of 2006 he even found the strength to play in one last lacrosse game. Nick passed away on November 28, 2006 at the age of 21. Even though he is gone, his memory and relentless determination lives on through the HEADstrong Foundation.
