The Headstrong Foundation was created by Nick Colleluori, a Hofstra University lacrosse player, to raise awareness for blood cancer and help others afflicted by the disease. Nick was diagnosed with large B-cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a blood cancer affecting the lymphatic system. He passed away in 2006, but since then the HEADstrong Foundation has raised more than $5 million to help find a cure for the disease that took his life. Before he died, he told his parents, “The lacrosse family is my brotherhood. They won’t turn their backs on you.” The Patriot Cup team is committed to Nick’s dream, and thanks you for you support.
