4th Annual Care for the Cure Lacrosse Tournament


On August 15, 2008 Caroline (Care) Cranston, at 24 years old, was diagnosed with leukemia. In high school, Care played lacrosse for West Chester Henderson and continued her lacrosse career at Duquesne University. Our mission is to bring the lacrosse community together and to raise awareness and funds for this terrible disease.

The 4th Annual Care for the Cure Lacrosse Tournament will be held on November 10, 2012 featuring boys and girls high school bracket. This year will mark the 4th year the tournament will look to raise money on behalf of Caroline who lost her life in a battle with AML Leukemia on May 8th 2010. The tournament has donated to the likes of Leukemia Lymphoma Society, Caroline Gallagher Cranston Memorial Fund, Headstrong Foundation, and the Be the Match Organization.

Care for the cure has been a feature tournament in the Philadelphia area for the last 4 years, promoting a family atmosphere with vendors, silent auction items, DJ Smooth and much more. The tournament will once again be held at West Chester Henderson High School which features 2 turf fields, and 4 other plush grass fields.


We will once again be raffling off the Official Care for the Cure Headwrapz CPXr with a Twitter contest. Follow @Cranstonthirty5 and @Lax_Evo for details the week of the tournament!

Lacrosse Playground

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
