The men’s lacrosse team has raised $12, 892 within the last two months to benefit the HEADstrong Foundation.
The fundraising was apart of the 2016 Lax Stache Madness and the Fairfield Stags’ total donation ranked first among all college lacrosse teams that participated.
The HEADstrong Foundation is a non profit organization. The foundation helps to improve the lives of those affected by cancer.
The purpose of Lax Stache Madness is for the student-athletes to grow a mustache during the time of the fundraiser and obtain donations for HEADstrong.
Student-athletes Andrew Eidenshink, Jake Knostman, Liam Lynch and Dave Fleming all raised over $1,000 each individually that was put towards the total amount.
“I am incredibly proud of our team for their efforts to raise money and awareness for the HEADstrong Foundation,” said Fairfield Head Coach Andy Copelan. This really is something for the Stags to be proud of!
