The Rivalry Games is just part of a family of events run by the HEADstrong foundation,
which raise money/awareness for blood cancer research as well as help those afflicted by
this horrible disease. Each of the teams will keep with HEADstrong tradition by
conducting a blood cancer awareness campaign on their respective campuses by
distributing literature and selling official HEADstrong t-shirts.

The HEADstrong Foundation was created in memory of Nick “Head” Colleluori who
was a 2004 graduate of Ridley High School and was a Hofstra University Lacrosse player
when he was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Nick lost his relentless battle to
cancer on November 28, 2006 after a 14-month fight.
