Last year the HEADstrong Rivalry Games was an overwhelming success, with over (3,000) fans attending & generating over ($32,000.00) in the Fight against Cancer.
The HEADstrong Foundation was founded by Hofstra University & Ridley High School Lacrosse Player Nick Colleluori. Nick established HEADstrong during his (14) month battle against cancer, a battle which he lost on November 28, 2006 during his Sophmore year at Hofstra. Since Lacrosse was Nick’s passion, and he can no longer carry the ball, his family & friends now carry the ball for him. As per Nick’s vision, the HEADstrong Foundation is dedicated to raising cancer awareness & research funds, and to assisting patients & families dealing with cancer.
