Entry to each event is $5 per person and will go directly to HEADstrong’s mission of assisting families affected by cancer. Teams participating at each location will also be fundraising, with their efforts going directly to local families that HEADstrong is assisting. Those funds will be presented to the families at a special presentation in between games by members of the Colleluori family and HEADstrong representatives.
