(Philadelphia, Penn., September 15, 2022) – The HEADstrong Foundation is pleased to announce that the Fall Event Series will return for a 15th year with 10 iterations of the Nick Colleluori Classic in October.
To kick everything off, the Event Series will head to Villanova on October 2nd when the women’s lacrosse team will host UMass Lowell and Monmouth University. The next weekend, the event returns to where it all began with two Nick Colleluori Classics at Hofstra University on October 8th and 9th. On Saturday, the Hofstra men’s lacrosse team will host Wagner College, Quinnipiac University, Lehigh University and the United States Air Force Academy while on Sunday the Hofstra women’s team will host Bryant University, Rutgers University and Stony Brook University.
Also on October 8th, the Bucknell men’s lacrosse program will host Mount St. Mary’s University and St. Bonaventure University while the UMass Women’s lacrosse program will host Yale University and Sacred Heart University that same day.
The following weekend will see three Nick Collelulori Classics taking place, with the Lafayette College men’s lacrosse program hosting Marist College, Bellarmine University and the New Jersey Institute of Technology on October 16th. Also that day the Johns Hopkins men’s program will play host to University of Maryland Baltimore County and Fairfield University while the women’s program will host Temple University and the University of Delaware.
On October 29th the Nick Colleluori Classic will return to Philadelphia as the University of Pennsylvania men’s lacrosse team will host the United States Naval Academy and St. Johns University and the Fall Event series will wrap up the following day, October 30th, as the Virginia Military Institute will host Washington and Lee College and Lenoir Rhyne University.
“We are so incredibly excited for the Fall Event Series this year,” HEADstrong President, and Nick’s mom, Cheryl Colleluori said. “This will be the most events that we have ever had and 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 $5 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 the families at a special presentation in between games by members of the Colleluori family and HEADstrong representatives.
