“When I first saw Graph-Tex’s product concepts I thought a custom pair of our gloves would be a great addition to their campaign,” said Ric Beardsley, upstate New York regional sales manager for Maverik Lacrosse. “Cancer is near to my heart since I lost my mother to the disease as a teenager and my father is currently battling it. I wanted to do whatever I could to help the cause.”
