Since 2007, HEADstrong has presented a series of fall collegiate men’s and women’s lacrosse philanthropic events. Originating at Ridley High School, Colleluori’s scholastic alma mater, the series has expanded to nine events overall that are hosted regionally in conjunction with collegiate partnerships. The second weekend of October will be the second of three consecutive weekends during the month to feature multiple lacrosse events at multiple locations.

“Twelve years later, our founder, and my son, Nicholas’ presence is still felt here at Hofstra,” said Cheryl Colleluori, HEADstrong President and Nick’s mom. “This University and this team meant the world to Nick and, as per his request, he was buried in his No. 27 uniform. Coach Tierney, Coach Smith and the entire Hofstra community, thank you for not forgetting! The events here at Hofstra means more than you will ever know.”

“It’s unbelievable to witness the growth of our fall event series,” said Cheryl Colleluori, HEADstrong President and Nick’s mom. “In 2007, the inaugural Nick Colleluori Lacrosse Classic was held at Nick’s high school with just four teams. This year the series spans nine locations with 42 teams representing — it’s an amazing testament to our sport and the greatest tribute to a son that a parent could ask for!”

In lieu of admission, a suggested donation of $5.00 per person will be asked at the gate. For more information on the HEADstrong Foundation, please visit www.headstrong.org and follow the foundation on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @HEADstrongFnd.
