(Folsom, PA) – On Saturday April 11th the HEADstrong Foundation™ will proudly present the 3rd Annual Relentless Cup at Ridley High School in Folsom, PA. The event will feature a college men’s lacrosse doubleheader pairing Cabrini College vs. Keystone College as well the heavily anticipated Division I Patriot League rivalry of Lafayette College vs. Bucknell University.
The Relentless Cup is a special fundraising lacrosse event uniting communities by combining interstate youth games, high school and college games. The youth component of the Relentless Cup is one that makes the event truly unique. Community-based youth lacrosse programs have been hand-selected by the Relentless Cup Committee to represent their specific region. This year Ridley Youth Lacrosse will represent SEPYLA, Kingsway Youth Lacrosse will represent SJYLA, Silverbacks Lacrosse Association will represent DYLA and Lower Macungie Youth Lacrosse will represent LVYLL. Boy’s teams competing at the U11, U13 and U15 levels will have the opportunity to play 3 full games against non-conference opponents. Participating teams are raising funds for the cause through #ProjectGameDay, HEADstrong’s online fundraising platform.

“We are thrilled and honored to be part of the lineup of the 3rd Annual Relentless Cup. Cancer is a disease that practically touched every member of our program and we strongly believe in the importance that HEADstrong has in the lacrosse community on behalf of the cancer community. We are very proud to be part of an event that raises awareness and funds to support real people dealing with the costs and devastation of the disease. We share the stage with some incredible teams this year and are looking forward to facing-off on Nick Colleluori’s home field to support his vision.” says Lafayette Head Coach Jim Rogalski
The Relentless Cup was introduced in 2012 as a spring fundraising event to support the HEADstrong Foundation’s fight against cancer. In its inaugural year, the event featured Hofstra University who captured the coveted trophy in a 13-1 victory over St. Joseph’s University. In 2013, it was the Lehigh Mountain Hawks who captured the cup with a 12-3 victory over the Georgetown Hoyas.
Proceeds from the Relentless Cup will support Nick’s House™ as well as the quality of life services for cancer patients and families provided by the HEADstrong Foundation™.
“The Relentless Cup has become an annual tradition and one of our most significant events during the year. It is as much of a celebration of the game as it is a fundraiser to support the cause. It is very humbling for our organization to be at the heart of this event. We are truly thankful to Nick’s beloved Ridley High School for allowing us the ability to host this event on campus and wish to sincerely thank Lafayette College, Bucknell University, Cabrini College and Keystone College as well as all of the participating youth programs for joining our fight” Cheryl Colleluori, HEADstrong President and Nick’s Mom
