For those of you who are new to the campaign; we wish to welcome you the 7th installment of Lacrosse Mustache Madness. All across the country lacrosse players are tossing their razors and we are out to our best start yet. With just one week into the campaign we have raised a record breaking Week 1 total of $41,127.00, which is an increase of over $27,051.50 versus years past. We have more than 567 participants representing over 54 fundraising teams. We are honestly very humbled by the immediate call to action in support of those devastated by the realities of cancer. We have seen the addition of so many new teams to the campaign this year, which is going to make this year one of the most competitive years yet! We still have a long-way to go, but this is the type of start we have always envisioned and we truly thank you for your commitment and efforts.
Week 2 Challenge
We are just 6 days from the start of November, which is the traditional facial hair growing season. Each of you has a network of friends, current/former teammates and colleagues. Challenge them to Get Growing by registering themselves and their teams at www.LaxStacheMadness.com. Challenge them to grow $1,000 for the cause or have them compete against you. Let’s see just how many lax stachers and fundraising teams we can get signed up! The more people we have fundraising the easier hitting our fundraising goal becomes!
