We’ve received an email from the Ireland Lacrosse team who is in need of our support. The team is currently raising money for team travel and accommodations to the FIL World Lacrosse Championships in Denver during the month of July. The thing that makes the World Championships amazing is the participation and inclusion of differing countries. Ireland is generating funds via shirt sales. The shirts are part of their Be Our Hero Campaign, which includes a badass shooting shirt. Please read the team’s message below and consider contributing.

I am a member of the Irish National Lacrosse Team and we are currently in preparation for the World Lacrosse Championships which are taking place this July in Denver, USA.
To give you a little bit of background, we are coming off the back of a Silver Medal finish at the European Championships in 2012 (sadly losing out to England in the final). We are hoping to raise awareness and funds ahead of our participation in the World Cup which takes place in Denver this July.
As the Ireland Lacrosse team is entirely player funded, we are looking at a cost of approximately €5,000 per player between the World Cup tournament in Denver and a Training Camp in NYC over the course of Paddy’s weekend (the team will be marching in the NYC Paddy’s Day Parade) where we will play some warm-up games against Israel and a local NY Club.
We have created a fundraising/promotional campaign called ‘Be Our Hero’. One of the activations of this campaign is the selling of super hero themed Ireland Lacrosse t-shirts.
Any help that we can get to raise awareness of the existence of lacrosse in Ireland and of our participation in the World Cup this July would be hugely appreciated. Please visit Ireland Lacrosse to learn more.
