The Salt Shakerz continue to make big noise but this time it’s “off the field” for a bigger cause…

The Salt Shakerz have committed to participating in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer (October 15th-16th) in New York for 2011. We hope the turnout fromthe Shakerz community is bigger than last year! More importantly the Shakerz set an ambitious goal of $3,000 and have since CRUSHED IT raising $3,800 with over a month to go! Breast cancer is a big disease, one that still affects far too many people, and the boys in pink are determined to do everything they can to help put an end to it.

The money raised will be managed and disbursed by the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade to help provide access to care for those that most need it, fund educational programs, and accelerate research into new treatments and potential cures.

About the Salt Shakerz:
The Salt Shakerz Lacrosse club is apost-collegiate traveling lacrosse team originating out of the New York City metro area. The Shakerz cametogether in the fall of 2008 when CJ Greene (VillanovaUniversity 00′) and Co. began talkingabout putting a competitive team together of “good guys” both on and off thefield to play in the New Yorkarea. The name ‘Salt Shakerz” is derived from the expression; ‘Pass theSalt’—or in Lax vernacular ‘keep it hot,’ ‘Spin it,’ or ‘one more’. The monikerpays homage to what the club likes to embody: unselfish and tasty play.

It goes without saying that people like tolax with guys they get along with, and that has been the goal of the team sinceday one. Obviously everyone wants to win, but for this group, no one player hasbeen bigger than the team. That being said, the club still puts together atalented squad. The Salt Shakerz roster includes current and former MLL, NLL,and LXM Pro Players-all the way to college club and MCLA guys. The Shakerz rotateplaying in the various tournaments based on the event and geography.
