The HEADstrong Foundation is pleased to announce it has been named charity of choice by Inside Lacrosse for the Konica Minolta Face-Off Classic and Big City Classic.
At each event, a brief video will be shown sharing the story of HEADstrong Foundation founder Nicholas Colleluori and thanking the lacrosse community for its continuous support. Nicholas, a 2004 graduate of Delaware County’s Ridley High School and Division I lacrosse player at Hofstra University struggled with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a vicious type of blood cancer, for over a year before he passed from the disease in November 2006 at the age of 21.
