BENEFITING: One Love Foundation in honor of Yeardley Love
EVENT DATE: Jun 17, 2017
Columbus' First Annual One Love Lacrosse Tournament is a multi-team, boys and girls, lacrosse tournament, organized to raise money for the One Love Foundation. One Love was founded in 2010 to honor Yeardley Love, a UVA student who was beaten to death by her ex-boyfriend just weeks before their graduation. After her death, Yeardley’s friends and family were shocked to learn the statistics about relationship violence and to realize that no one knew how at risk Yeardley really was. The mission of the One Love Foundation in honor of Yeardley Love is to end relationship violence by educating, empowering and activating young people in a movement for change. Participants in the lacrosse tournament will go through an educational workshop the night before the tournament to understand what signs of relationship violence look like, and what they can do to prevent or stop it. All proceeds raised will go directly to the One Love Foundation. Help us in our efforts to end relationship violence!
