“We are incredibly humbled by the outpouring of support shown by so many colleges and universities for our cause.  This fall we will have a record number of programs fundraising and participating in our upcoming events.  At HEADstrong we are striving to have to greatest impact on behalf of those devastated by the disease and having so many programs involved is an extremely powerful statement on behalf of the lacrosse community.  We wish to extend our sincere appreciation to all of the teams, supporters and volunteers who will be part of our fundraising events this fall.”- Cheryl Colleluori, HEADstrong President and Nick’s Mom
