The Make-A-Wish Foundation caught wind of a young girl named Maddie Althoff. Althoff and her family spent nearly a month in the hospital in 2009 after a trip to Urgent Care revealed she had severe aplastic anemia — an autoimmune disorder where white blood cells attack bone marrow. Her favorite sport is lacrosse.

Make-A-Wish contacted the Minnesota Swarm and they surprised Maddie at school with sticks provided by Epoch Lacrosse and season tickets to the the Swarm this season.

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.
