About HEADstrong and the Nick Colleluori Classic
The Men’s Nick Colleluori Classic Long Island hosted by Hofstra University is a special collegiate lacrosse event honoring the life and legacy of Nick “HEAD” Colleluori. Colleluori was a lacrosse player entering his sophomore year at Hofstra when he was terminally diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. His public fight from the sidelines captivated the nation and from his hospital bed he created the HEADstrong Foundation to help improve lives affected by cancer. In addition to supporting local families, this event will also support the expansion of Nick’s House, a family home located in Swarthmore, PA that provides complimentary lodging for families displaced to the Greater Philadelphia Region seeking potentially lifesaving cancer treatments at area hospitals. Nick’s House is a home away from home for families from all over the country, allowing them to pursue the most innovative and advanced treatments while having the comfort and embrace of a loving community when they are so far away from their own.
