Big12 was developed as an ELITE recruiting tournament platform for 2018 and 2019 teams, but as importantly Big12 Fall Lacrosse Invitational combines the current growth and enthusiasm for the game of lacrosse with an important cause, the Battle Against ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). Proceeds from the event will go to the Brigance Brigade Foundation to support families with members suffering from ALS.

ALS is a disease that affects only the body, not the mind. ALS affects nerves that surround the spinal cord that control our muscles. Patients ultimately lose the ability to use their muscles, and end up in a wheelchair unable to move, speech is normally affected and ultimately lost…although the body is affected the mind remains intact.

Receiving support like automated wheelchairs with built in respirators, computerized communication tools and other critical support tools can significantly enhance the quality of life of those suffering and for the families and members offering support. Big12 Fall Lacrosse Tournament will raise funds to provide this support.

Big12 Fall Lacrosse Invitational welcomes those in the lacrosse community to attend as spectators at the Big12 event Sunday 11/15 at Blandair Park Columbia, MD.
