HEADstrong's Fall Four Raises Over $200,000

There are many things that contribute to the overall success of HEADstrong events, expanding beyond the fundraising component. The events are organized and facilitated by members of the Colleluori family and their many devoted volunteers and supporters. The organization works diligently to provide an incredible experience while sharing a piece of themselves with spectators. Additionally, all of the participating schools support the cause by fundraising on their respected campuses to give the players vested interest in the cause. Each team is assigned an honorary captain who has been directly affected by the disease. Furthermore, members of the Colleluori family give a heartfelt recognition to through the presentation of the Nick Colleluori Award to players from each team who are transforming the landscape of their program. Combined, the organization has found this personalized approach to be a receipt for successful fall fundraising.

"On behalf of the HEADstrong Foundation, the Colleluori family and our founder, Nicholas, we wish to extend our sincere appreciation to all of the teams, supporters and volunteers who were part of all of our fundraising events this fall. This fall was really special, as we had the most participation from teams in the history of our organization. The reality is that rates of occurrence and reoccurrence of blood cancers are peaking at an all-time high and the demand for our services has never been greater. As a non-profit organization dedicated to improving quality of life for patients and families impacted by blood cancers, we are always looking for ways to engage supporters, increase awareness, and raise funds to support our mission. We look forward to partnering with teams and presenting more athletic events so that we can continue to make an impact and further our presence in the cancer community." - Cheryl Colleluori, HEADstrong President and Nick's Mom
