Lacrosse for Wishes is a competitive summer travel program for female lacrosse players to benefit Make-A-Wish® Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. Lacrosse for Wishes is not only about becoming the best lacrosse player you can be, but also about giving back to local kids with life-threatening medical conditions.
Tryouts for the Lacrosse for Wishes will be held on Sunday, September 18th. All girls entering the 6th through 9th grade in the 2016-2017 school year are welcome to participate. This year, Lacrosse for Wishes hopes to form three teams for its summer league, with the goal of each team raising $10,000 for Make-A-Wish!
The money raised will help grant wishes like the one experienced by the niece of Lacrosse for Wishes Managing Directors Bonnie and Kevin Carroll. Battling a life-threatening neurological condition, she had her wish granted to go on a Disney cruise. She didn’t have a single seizure while on her wish trip – something her family calls a miracle.
Players should be from the Greater Cincinnati area, including Hamilton, Butler, Warren, Clermont and Clinton counties. To register, please visit http://leagueathletics.com/Registration/Default.asp?org=laxforwishesohio.org or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ll see you on the field!
