In 2007, three mothers of the STEPS Lacrosse club were diagnosed with breast cancer. Inspired by their strength, Jessica and Charlie Shoulberg started Lax For The Cure to bring awareness about breast cancer while also raising funds to help fight the disease. Since 2007, Lax For The Cure and it’s players from across the country have raised over $4 million!!
