HEADstrong Fall Event Series Returns With Six Events
(Philadelphia, Penn., September 7, 2023) – The HEADstrong Foundation is pleased to announce that the Fall Event Series will return for a 16th year with six events this October.
To kick everything off, the Event Series will head to UMass on October 7th when the women’s lacrosse team will host Albany, Boston University, Quinnipiac, Sacred Heart, New Hampshire, Bryant, Vermont and Holy Cross. That same weekend, the event returns to where it all began with two Nick Colleluori Classics at Hofstra University on October 7th and 8th. On Saturday, the Hofstra men’s lacrosse team will host Bucknell, Monmouth, Johns Hopkins and Lehigh while on Sunday the Hofstra women’s team will host LaSalle, Long Island University and Iona.
The following weekend the fall event series will again return to Massachusetts, with the Boston University men’s lacrosse program hosting Manhattan College and UMass Lowell while the women’s program will host Brown and UConn on October 14th.
On October 22nd the fall event series will wrap up at Lafayette as the men’s lacrosse program there will host UMBC and Marist College.
“We are so incredibly excited for the Fall Event Series this year,” HEADstrong President, and Nick’s mom, Cheryl Colleluori said. “There is no better way for us to honor Nick’s life and legacy than on the lacrosse field that he loved so much.”
Entry to each event is $10 per person and will go directly to HEADstrong’s mission of assisting families affected by cancer. Teams participating at each location will also be fundraising, with their efforts going directly to local families that HEADstrong is assisting. Those funds will be presented to a family at each location at a special presentation in between games by members of the Colleluori family and HEADstrong representatives.
