The HEADstrong Foundation will host its final fall lacrosse events on Sunday, Oct. 21 with the University City Men’s and Women’s Classics hosted by Penn’s men’s and women’s programs.

Since 2007, HEADstrong has presented a series of fall collegiate men’s and women’s lacrosse philanthropic events.

“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 to both events, a suggested donation of $5.00 per person will be asked at the gate. For more information on the HEADstrong Foundation, please visit and follow the foundation on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @HEADstrongFnd.
