Washington, DC (April 14, 2010) — Many were called, but few were chosen on Saturday March 27th to participate in the first ever Goals for Good lacrosse tournament taking place at Georgetown University Multi Sport Field the evening of April 24th. In a city were both rivalries and charities flourish it is only fitting that Goals for Good will be a melee with meaning; to raise attention and funds for the Alzheimer’s Association.

“The roster for this our first Goals for Good lacrosse game is an impressive mix of young athletes, business leaders, entrepreneurs and policy professionals.” said David Meslar, Goals for Good founder and 2010 Chair. “I cannot thank these guys enough for volunteering their time and skills to this event. The support from participants and especially our sponsors; VitaminWater, Tommy McFly and Mix 107.3, and Madlax.com has made this game a reality. I hope that it will continue to grow and serve as a reminder the importance of raising awareness and commitment to finding a cure for a disease that affects so many people and families.”

Goals for Good-Gents Against Alzheimer’s is a volunteer-driven event that raises awareness and funds for the Alzheimer’s Association. Two teams will compete in a lacrosse tournament to help end Alzheimer’s. Each team will recruit coaches, announcers and other volunteers to build an atmosphere of fierce and friendly competition. Leading up to game day, players will participate in a series of events with goal of increasing awareness for Alzheimer’s disease. Additionally, players will work to raise money to benefit the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.

Join us for Game Day on April 24th to see this impressive list of participants in action. For more information on the events or to donate to Goals for Good please visit: Goals For Good.

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.
