The 4th Annual “Checking for Cancer” Lacrosse Invitational is slated for Saturday, April 14 at Haverford School. The day will feature a full slate of high school varsity boys and girls games with numerous nationally ranked boys’ teams in the mix.
Aside from great competition, the primary purpose and motivation behind the formation of CFC is to promote awareness of Prostate, Colorectal and Testicular Cancers. Nostrant, a prostate cancer survivor, is close friends with Giblin, a colon cancer survivor. the two played together at Washington College (Md.) and have remained friends off the field and rivals on the field.
On the business side, CFC has raised over $80,000 in just three years, with all event profits earmarked for cancer research and for those organizations in need of special support. Last year’s total contribution of $42,000 was donated to the University of Pennsylvania – Livestrong Center of Excellence and West Philadelphia Outreach Program, the Kimmel Cancer Center, Cuddle My Kids and Great Guys Group.
