Bloomsburg Lacrosse to Participate in Lax 4 Life

Bloomsburg--The Bloomsburg University lacrosse team will take part in "Lax 4 Life" on Saturday when the Huskies host Mercyhurst on Saturday at 1 p.m. at Sports Stadium.

"Lax 4 Life" is a foundation that deals with adolescent suicide prevention. Proceeds raised at the game will go towards the Allyson Fund that was started three years ago after Allyson Green, younger sister to former West Chester University goalkeeper Mary Beth Green, committed suicide.

Both schools will wear "Lax 4 Life" T-shirts in pregame warm-ups and have a collective photo taken to commemorate the occasion. Additionally, a collection will be taken up in the stands to help raise money for this worthy cause.
