BENEFITING: National Foundation for Cancer Research
EVENT: Cannons Fighting Cancer
EVENT DATE: Jun 23, 2016
NHYLA was the first Youth Lacrosse Organization to step up as a state wide initiative to #Play4theCure for the National Foundation for Cancer Research (NFCR). We are excited to begin our second season supporting the work of NFCR and this year we are joining with the Boston Cannons in the #CannonsFightingCancer initiative. The theme this year is “Unity”, as in we’re all in this together – NHYLA, the Cannons, NFCR, sponsors, US Lacrosse, Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), Cannons fans, and the business and research community, making a difference in funding cancer research. This year the funds raised will go directly to the laboratory of Dr. Daniel Haber, Director of the MGH Cancer Center.
Lacrosse teaches good sportsmanship and teamwork and we will celebrate our success in supporting NFCR and our lacrosse season as it culminates in our two day Lacrosse Festival June 11-12.
We share NFCR's belief that Research for a Cure is important to our generation. The work done today can become the treatments a decade or more from now and we are proud to #Play4theCure.
