Why HEADstrong?HEADstrong is all about playing for something greater than oneself. Through lessons of camaraderie while playing a sport with so much passion, an elevated sense of purpose is found. HEADstrong has meant so much to me at different points in my life. When I was younger, it was my lacrosse team, but now I’m aware of how much HEADstrong helps those battling disease.
