LFG OPENS REGISTRATION FOR PA AND OHIO FOOTBALL CAMPS
EASTON, PA (Feb. 9, 2011) – Lauren’s First and Goal Foundation today announced that registration is now available for its 2011 football camps in Pennsylvania and Ohio. To make it easier for student-athletes, online registration is available at www.LaurensFirstandGoal.org.
The LFG football camps are scheduled for Sunday, June 5 at Lafayette College in Easton, Pa. and Sunday, June 26 at Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio. The camps are open to students who will be entering grades 9 through 12 in Sept. 2011. During the one-day camp, athletes receive instruction in a variety of offensive and defensive skills from volunteer college coaches from around the country. Each camp also includes a guest speaker, which will be announced closer to the camp date.
To register for the camps, student-athletes can visit www.LaurensFirstandGoal.org for instructions, including how to submit their $30 registration fee through Paypal. Campers wishing to pay by check can download printable forms from the website.
Last year, more than 2,100 athletes attended the camps in Pennsylvania and Ohio, while 341 coaches representing more than 129 colleges and universities volunteered their time.
The camps are the primary fundraiser for Lauren’s First and Goal Foundation, which is a 501c3 charitable organization that provides financial support for brain tumor research and cancer services, offers financial and emotional support to families living with pediatric cancer, and increases awareness of the disease. Created in 2004 by John and Marianne Loose in honor of their 13-year-old daughter Lauren, a pediatric brain tumor survivor, LFG has donated more than $800,000 toward the fight against pediatric brain tumors and cancer.
