Grand Rapids Christian and Rockford Men’s Lacrosse are coming together for their annual event – LAX vs. Cancer. These schools rally together each year to raise funds for cancer research happening at Van Andel Institute. Each player will be honoring those close to them that have battled or are currently battling cancer, by having their name on the back of their jersey. This year they are directing their funds towards pediatric cancer research happening in the lab of Dr. Patrick Grohar. Dr. Grohar is a former D1 Villanova Lacrosse Player and it delighted to be a part of this event for the second consecutive year!
This year’s event will take place at Grand Rapids Christian (Eagle’s Stadium) on Saturday, April 22. We will kick off the day with games at 12:30 PM and wrap up the day with Calvin College vs. Adrian.
12:30 PM: Rockford JV A vs. Opponent
2:00 PM: GR Christian JV vs. Rockford JV B
4:00 PM: GR Christian Varsity vs. Rockford Varsity
7:00 PM: Calvin College vs. Adrian
Each player will be responsible for raising a minimum of $50.00 but we hope to see them go above and beyond knowing 100% of all funds raised will go directly to pediatric cancer research.
Thank you in advance for your support of this worthy cause and for enjoying, what we believe will be, a great day of lacrosse!
