What does HEADstrong mean to you?

Being a part of HEADstrong was something that I wanted to do back in 2017 when my team, Wagner Seahawks, participated in a HEADstrong Women’s Lacrosse play-day at Hofstra University. The Colleluori’s explained their story, and shared with us how Nick was the inspiration for everything we saw before us. Losing several members in my own family to cancer is what sparked my want to give back to the community around me, and the foundation through lacrosse. Being able to Coach and manage the South Jersey Program, while also being able to volunteer for events to support families battling cancer has been extraordinary. HEADstrong is not just a foundation, it is a family.
