Help Support LAX Against Leukemia
Lax Against Leukemia is a pre-season high school lacrosse tournament at Premier Sports Campus of Lakewood Ranch on Saturday February 13 to benefit the Joey Powers Leukemia Project. Joey Powers played lacrosse at Cardinal Mooney High School before losing his fight with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia a day before his sixteenth birthday.
Joey had a profound impact on many people in his short 15 years of life. His dying wish was to help other families whose children are diagnosed with cancer. In the U.S., about 3,500 children are diagnosed with Leukemia each year. The Joey Powers Leukemia Project was founded by his family in 2010. This non-profit organization supports families battling pediatric leukemia by providing financial, educational and emotional support.
2021 will be the seventh annual tournament and largest to date, with 20 girls teams and 16 boys teams. Donations may be made at LAXAgainstLeukemia.org/Donate.
