Lacrosse Mustache History
Lacrosse Mustache Madness™ is now its 6th year. The campaign was conceptualized by professional lacrosse player Ken Clausen during his senior year at the University of Virginia who was looking for a fun and interactive way to make a difference through the game. Clausen teamed up with UVA athletic trainer Rebecca Vozzo to create the fall campaign marketed around Ken’s signature mustache. Ken thought it would it would a fun way to unite players in the traditional off-season to raise funds to support causes rooted in the game.
Originally, HEADstrong Foundation™ was a partial benefactor of the campaign. HEADstrong recognized the opportunity to support and evolve the campaign to a national level and HF offered to support the campaign administratively allowing Clausen the ability to be the face of the fundraiser. Working alongside of the HEADstrong Foundation, Clausen learned that he and the organization had much more in common than just trying to do good things through the sport. It turned out that HF founder Nicholas Colleluori and Ken were both from Southeastern, Pennsylvania, both wore the #27, both were defensemen and ironically were born on the same day, October 19th. Clausen also developed a strong relationship with HF Director of Development Pat Colleluori. Initially, the kick-off for LMM™ began November 1st, but after realizing that Nick and Ken shared a birthday we decided to use October 19th as the start date for the campaign. During its inaugural year LMM™ raised $32,000 and has grown significantly since gaining the support of lacrosse players and teams at all levels throughout the country. In 2010, the campaign took flight and the raising over $65,000. In 2011, the campaign grew even further raising $91,000. In 2012, $103,000 was raised and in 2013 campaign shocked the lacrosse world raising a record breaking $108,000 to support the cause.
