HEADstrong Partners With True Lacrosse For 7v7 Tournament
PHILADELPHIA, PA (July 2, 2021) – The HEADstrong Foundation and True Lacrosse have teamed up for the 7v7 Attack Cancer Challenge in August.
The event, an intra-club tournament with True’s Illinois club to support local families affected by cancer, will take place on August 14 and 15 at Hassert Park in Romeoville, IL. Participants from all age groups will team up to face off against each other throughout the two-day event. All players will fundraise to participate, with proceeds going to a local True family currently affected by cancer.
“This idea was inspired by a parent from one of our True families who along with her spouse are both battling cancer with multiple young kids to care for,” said Jake Deane, Founder and Co-Owner of True. “We felt that True needed to do something as cancer is a terrible disease where most of us probably know of someone who is battling and or has passed away from it. If we can run an event to not only help True families who are battling cancer but also help bring awareness to people around the country who are suffering from cancer – this is a no brainer to do it . We at True are proud to partner up with the HEADstrong Foundation to bring the 7v7 Attack Cancer Challenge to Illinois!“
“It speaks volumes of True Lacrosse that they want to use this opportunity to help families in their program in this way,” said Cheryl Colleluori, HEADstrong President and Nick’s Mom. “As a non-profit organization that proudly takes a team approach to serving the needs of families navigating the most harrowing of circumstances, it means the world to have their support. This is an amazing opportunity for youth players to learn about the cause and have a real impact in the lives of the families that we help on a daily basis.”
