Holmes, PA – Since the HEADstrong Foundation’s inception in 2006 the sport of lacrosse has served the organization as a vehicle for generating funds and blood cancer awareness. On Sunday March 24th, the organization proudly unveiled their latest addition, an actual vehicle for promoting blood cancer awareness. The new custom fabricated 20ft trailer will be used for grassroots an special event marketing for the organization, who is currently involved with over 160 events annually. This newest addition is giving new mean to term Tour For A Cure.
Over the past six years the HEADstrong Foundation™ has taken an organic approach to growing their cause, having a vending presence at lacrosse events and tournaments throughout the country. Their efforts of sharing their story, educating lacrosse families of their service offering, empowering people to join their fight and selling their arsenal of awareness merchandise has allowed them to gain national exposure.
The HEADstrong Foundation called upon a dedicated group of volunteers to fabricate the new custom HEADstrong trailer. The project was led by Nick’s father Pat Colleluori Sr., Dan Colleluori and Nick Veratti, who put their heart, soul and expertise into the project.
The design for the trailer was created by Kyle Garzia of 20Two Creative . J.B. Meyer owner of Chief Signs in Port Washington, NY and father of Yale lacrosse player Jack Meyer. Nick Veratti of Knowlton Construction Supplies in Media, PA and father of Loyola lacrosse player Justin Veratti was instrumental in the collaboration and fabrication of the trailer.
HEADstrong hopes the new trailer will help to further their reach with increased visibility and awareness while traveling, participating and hosting lacrosse events throughout the country.
“This new project was a labor of love.” says Pat Colleluori Sr., father of HEADstrong Founder Nicholas “HEAD” Colleluori. “I am mostly behind the scenes when it comes to the Foundation but we poor our hearts and soul into everything we do in Nick’s name. I find that working on projects to further the Foundation is therapeutic in dealing with his loss of Nick. We could not have done this without the hardwork and dedication of our volunteers. Thank you for believing in our fight and always being relentless.”
