The Travis Manion Foundation is coordinating a Memorial Lacrosse Game in honor of 1st Lt Travis Manion, USMC and LT (SEAL) Brendan Looney, USN on April 8th at 3:00 P.M. at Navy/Marine Corps Stadium in Annapolis, Md.
The game – featuring La Salle College High School and DeMatha Catholic – will be played prior to the Navy vs Maryland lacrosse contest.
Travis (La Salle 99′) and Brendan (DeMatha 99′) were athletes, best friends and roommates at the Naval Academy and both gave their lives defending our freedoms.
The Foundation is currently in the process of soliciting donations for the event to offset costs to rent the Stadium. All donations go to the 1st Lt Travis Manion Foundation, which assists wounded Veterans and the families of Fallen Heroes (www.travismanion.com).
The Foundation’s intent is to rent the stadium out in order to generate revenue from sales during the event that would go directly to the Foundation. All contributions for the event and the foundation are greatly appreciated. Please forward and questions or concerns through the Foundation office (information listed below).
