ABOUT LAX FOR THE CURE
Lax For The Cure originated in 2007 from the concept of Jessica Shoulberg (Mendham High School Coach, Director of STEPS Lacrosse, and Director of Lax by the Sea Tournament). During the summer of 2007, there were three mothers from the STEPS Lacrosse Club fighting cancer. Jessica’s concept came from the idea that the growth of both girls lacrosse and the summer tournament circuit could present an opportunity to meet the ideals of parents, players, clubs, and college coaches and also, have an ultimate goal of finding a way to raise funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer.
Charlie Shoulberg (founder of STEPS Lacrosse, Assistant GM of the Men’s US National Team, and Director of Lax by the Sea Tournament), Jessica’s husband, started research immediately and was able to pair up with the Susan G. Komen Foundation to help with Lax For The Cure.
Lax For The Cure’s mission is to provide a girls lacrosse tournament experience that not only promotes the sport of lacrosse but also helps coaches with recruiting, gives back to the community, and allows all participants and families to have as much fun as possible!
