HEADstrong will also have a full offering of supporter-wear on hand with proceeds helping to advance the mission. Proceeds will support the HEADstrong Foundation, an organization founded by Colleluori to improve lives of those affected by cancer.
Colleluori was a lacrosse player entering his sophomore year at Hofstra when he was terminally diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. His public fight from the sidelines captivated the nation and from his hospital bed, he created the HEADstrong Foundation to help improve lives affected by cancer. In addition to supporting local families, this event will also support the expansion of Nick’s House, a family home located in Swarthmore, PA that provides complimentary lodging for families displaced to the Greater Philadelphia Region seeking potentially lifesaving cancer treatments at area hospitals. Nick’s House is a home away from home for families from all over the country, allowing them to pursue the most innovative and advanced treatments while having the comfort and embrace of a loving community when they are so far away from their own.
