The DC Lacrosse Classic is an annual event that started 9 years ago, with a vision to celebrate the sport and its growth throughout Washington, DC while also raising funds to help grow the game further through WINNERS Lacrosse. Again this year, Play4TheCure joins WINNERS Lacrosse as a beneficiary to help bring the event to new heights!
Founded in 2000, the Washington Inner City Lacrosse Foundation (WINNERS Lacrosse) provides inner city boys and girls the opportunity to play the great sport of lacrosse free of charge. Through outstanding coaching, WINNERS Lacrosse assists underserved boys & girls by instilling character based life skills, discipline, teamwork, accountability, dedication, leadership and integrity.
Play4TheCure is a signature program of the National Foundation for Cancer Research (NFCR), a leading cancer research charity dedicated to funding cancer research and public education relating to cancer prevention, earlier diagnosis, better treatments and, ultimately, a cure for cancer. NFCR promotes and facilitates collaboration among scientists to accelerate the pace of discovery from bench to bedside.
We are also proud to welcome Ledo Pizza this year who is providing a pizza party to our TOP fundraising team! Mark your calendars for March 11, 2017 for a fun and full day of lacrosse in the District! To read more about the event please visit our website: http://www.dclacrosseclassic.com/
