Pro Lacrosse Talk releases “Lacrosse is Medicine” shirts to raise money for COVID-19 relief effort

Pro Lacrosse Talk today released “Lacrosse is Medicine” shirts and announced it will donate all profits to the CDC Foundation to aid in the COVID-19 (coronavirus) relief effort.

“Lacrosse is the ‘medicine game’ for a reason and we wanted to honor that fact and provide some metaphorical healing to the lacrosse community during this difficult time,” Pro Lacrosse Talk editor-in-chief and co-founder Hutton Jackson said.

“This is just a small way we can do our part and support the relief effort during this global pandemic,” Pro Lacrosse Talk managing editor and co-founder Adam Moore added.

The Pro Lacrosse Talk team first came up with the “Lacrosse is Medicine” slogan when working with the lacrosse brand Lax Straps. From there, contributing writer David Wildman had the idea to create shirts and raise money for the relief effort.

“Our partners at DSGN TREE were able to get the design up on our store and have been a huge help in getting the fundraiser off the ground. We appreciate the efforts of Drew Smith and the entire DSGN TREE team,” Hutton Jackson said.

All the profits made from the sale of “Lacrosse is Medicine” shirts and hoodies will go to the CDC Foundation. Pro Lacrosse Talk has also set up a fundraising page for those interested in donating directly to the CDC Foundation.

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.
