From Press Release
The Lafayette men’s lacrosse team competed in the Nicholas Colleluori Classic last weekend at Hofstra. The event supports the HEADstrong Foundation, whose aim is to improve the lives of those affected by cancer.
Exceeding its original goal of $3,000 raised for the cause, the Leopards were able to rally over $5,000 for the HEADstrong Foundation in support of the family of Nicholas Colleluori. Colleluori was a lacrosse player entering his sophomore year at Hofstra when he was terminally diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. He was the founder of HEADstrong and lost his courageous and untimely battle in 2006 at the age of 21.
The HEADstrong Foundation is committed to improving the quality of life for cancer patients and their families through providing essential programs and services.
During the event, senior goalie Matt Cortese was announced as Lafayette’s Colleluori Award recipient, given to a member of each program whose contributions on and off the field are transforming the landscape of their represented program.
Joining Lafayette on the field on Saturday was Hobart College, Hofstra, Mount St., Mary’s and Yale. For more information on the HEADstrong Foundation and how you can make a difference, visit here.
