From Press Release
The HEADstrong Foundation™ and Stylin Strings Inc. have teamed to present the Strings For Hope Project (SFHP™). Through this newly formed partnership, Stylin Strings has been named the official head stringers and dyers of the HEADstrong Foundation™.
SFHP™ is focused on celebrating customization, uniting the custom mesh community and promoting cancer awareness. The campaign will not only allow customers the ability customize lacrosse heads and pockets but also allow them to select from a wide range of exclusively designed mesh and strings to support the cause.
Some of the top mesh suppliers in the game including: East Coast Mesh, Jimalax, and Throne of String were directly involved in creating official HEADstrong mesh so that customers can build their custom head exclusively through Stylin Strings.

“The evolution of custom stringing, stringing components and mesh suppliers in the game is quite fascinating and has created a new product category in the sports,” said Pat Colleluori, HF CMO and Nick’s Brother. “These companies have provided a channel for self-expression and personalization that we believe is an ideal platform for promoting cause awareness.
“Over the years we have fostered some amazing relationships with mesh suppliers and were looking for a way to collaborate on a project to allow for lacrosse players to support the cause while having the ability to build custom pockets using their preferred components. SFHP is an incredible way for lacrosse players to raise awareness and share the HF mission on the playing field. Stylin Strings is known in the industry as one the most innovative dye studio’s in the sport and we are proud to have them as the official custom stringer/dyer of the HEADstrong Foundation.”
Through SFHP™, Stylin Strings will create a custom pocket called the “Relentless Pocket”. The pocket will be available in all colors with a percentage of proceeds supporting the mission.
