From its inception the Nicholas Colleluori Classic has become a tradition in the sport of lacrosse. Now in its 6th year, this special charity event presented by the HEADstrong Foundation has seen over $1,000,000 generated in their fight against blood cancer.

“It is hard to believe that 6 years have gone by since the passing of our Nick and the start of the NCC. Every year we are rejuvenated by the success that this event has had. The outcry of support still overwhelms us and we are so proud of the impact that this single event has made within the blood cancer community. The NCC is the single most requested event that our network of patient advocates asks to be part of. As a family, as a Foundation and as a sport we come together to support the fight against blood cancer in the name of my son and our Founder Nicholas “HEAD” Colleluori. We work diligently to ensure this event is an amazing experience for all who attend. We are incredibly grateful to our past and present teams, vendors, volunteers, sponsors and families who have continued to support the NCC and the HEADstrong Foundation. We look forward to seeing everyone in October.” Cheryl Colleluori HEADstrong President and Nick’s Mom
