Annual girls lacrosse ‘pink’ game to benefit Rockford Relay for Life

The inspiration for the Rockford girls lacrosse team to do this came from former Rockford lacrosse player Alysse Tefft, who is a cancer survivor. In the middle of her 24 hours at Relay for Life in 2008, Tefft left the Relay to compete in a lacrosse game and then immediately returned to complete her 24 hours. Her dedication and determination to beat cancer motivated the entire lacrosse program to step up.

The Rockford players will be wearing pink jerseys with the name of a person they would like to honor. Some of these are valiant fighters and survivors—some who continue to battle this illness. There are courageous others who may have lost the battle.

Proceeds from event sales and sponsorships will be donated to Rockford Relay for Life. Donations will be gladly accepted and may be made near the admissions gate. Support Rockford Relay for Life through Rockford girls lacrosse at the Ted Carlson Memorial Stadium on Saturday, May 15. Games start at 11 a.m.
