Dartmouth’s Bishop Stang Lacrosse raises $6,000 for the American Cancer Society with “Stick it to Cancer” event


Dartmouth, MA: On April 29th, the Bishop Stang Girls and Boys Lacrosse programs ran a very successful “Stick it to Cancer” fundraiser event. Capturing wins on the field, however, weren’t the only accomplishments. Collectively, we were able to raise more than $6,000 to be donated towards cancer research through the American Cancer Society.

After a successful event last year, we wanted to aim even higher and begin to incorporate our Boys Lacrosse program as well. The goal for this year was set at $5,000. With the Girls hosting Seekonk at 3:45, and the Boys Hosting Old Rochester at 6:00, this doubleheader was the perfect opportunity to join forces and achieve our goal. The fundraiser was off to a great start, having already raised more than $2,300 towards the goal prior to the event.

The players from all teams incorporated pink, purple, and other colors that represented a particular type of cancer as part of their game uniform for the night. It was a packed campus with great energy and an even greater capacity to create change. Old Rochester and Seekonk were both great partners to us and their school communities helped us surpass our goal!

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me at When our school community comes together for a great cause, we are able to accomplish amazing things!
