The HEADstrong Foundation is pleased to announce that we have been named Charity of Choice for the Big City Classic scheduled for Saturday, April 10th, 2010 at the New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. The second annual Big City Classic delivers the elite names of lacrosse in the first-ever event at the nation’s newest NFL venue, the New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
Cheryl and Michael Colleluori will have the opportunity to speak to the audience during one of the half-times telling Nick’s story and thanking the lacrosse community for their continuous support. A HEADstrong tent will be in the vendor area and HEADstrong apparel will be available.
The participating teams have been invited to wear our lime green shoe laces and lime green chin straps provided by Cascade in support of the HEADstrong Foundation. Additionally, the NCAA referee officials will also wear lime green and black uniforms supporting our cause.
Special group rates for HEADstrong supporters are $15.00 for groups of 10 or more. For groups of 300, then each group would be allowed to have 4 ball boys on the field during each game. All the ball boys will be provided official HEADstrong t-shirts to wear during the game.
