More than 250 teams and 5,000 players will compete Friday, Saturday and Sunday in the LAX For The Cure Summer Tournament at New Egypt High in New Egypt, NJ.

The event has two purposes: to provide a highly competitive tournament that brings many college coaches (at least 150 are expected); but more importantly to raise both awareness and money for the fight against breast cancer. Funds raised go to the North, Central and South Jersey Affiliates of Susan G. Komen.lax for cure

More than 150 college coaches have committed to attend the event.

Age groups beginning play today and concluding tomorrow include Classes of 2015, 2016, and 2017. The 2015 field includes many of the top programs from New York, New Jersey, Maryland and Pennsylvania. The 2020/21, 2019 and 2018 Divisions played Friday and conclude today. All Divisions have championship-style formats.

Already, the event has raised over $1,500,000.

Much of the funds go to programs that offer breast health, breast cancer screening, education, treatment support and outreach. Other funds go to to national breast cancer research programs in search of a cure.

The tournament was the initial concept of Jessica Shoulberg, Mendham High School Coach, Director of STEPS Lacrosse and Director of the Lax By The Sea tournament. During the summer of 2007 the STEPS Lacrosse club had three mothers fighting breast cancer.
