'Lacrosse Against Diabetes' a Huge Success
HIGHTSTOWN, N.J. -- Hosted by the Peddie Falcons on the new turf field, a group of dedicated teams put the true spirit of lacrosse to the test this past Saturday, collecting more than $7,500 for Team Brotherly Love. Founded by Peddie junior Dan Fine, the not-for-profit organization raises awareness of Type 2 diabetes and its effects on families as well as funds research for a cure. Through the group’s efforts help support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International (JDRF) and also the Life for a Child program through the International Diabetes Research Foundation.
The preseason play day featured some of New Jersey’s top high school boys lacrosse teams, including Peddie, Bergen Catholic, Seton Hall Prep, Moorestown, Glen Ridge, Cherokee, and St. Augustine Prep in addition to Connecticut power Avon Old Farms. Using a round-robin format, each team played three 30-minute games as they prepare for the spring season.
