NLC taking part in Cancer Awareness Week
As part of its initiative to help battle the fight against cancer, all the members of the National Lacrosse Conference will take part in a Cancer Awareness Week starting on Friday.

“It is great that all the coaches in the league wanted to get together and participate in such a great cause,” said NLC Commissioner Steve Corder. “The weekend is a great opportunity to raise money and help a lot of local charities in the fight against cancer and it really shows what collegiate sports is all about.”

Home teams from the conference will wear cancer awareness t-shirts while warming up, while some schools will be selling t-shirts with all proceeds going to local cancer charities. Teams will also set up a donation table at home sites for all of those fans interested in helping out to this great cause.

Founded in 2009, the National Lacrosse Conference is a premier NCAA Division I women’s lacrosse conference. Truly a national conference, the NLC is comprised of teams from Florida (Jacksonville University), Michigan (University of Detroit Mercy), North Carolina (Davidson College and High Point University), South Carolina (Presbyterian College), Virginia (Liberty University and Longwood University) and Washington, D.C. (Howard University).

The NLC and its members are proud of their commitment to academics, character, community and athletics.
