Members of the Lower Merion High School girls and boys lacrosse teams held a pizza dinner to raise money for this year's KSF Lacrosse Festival.
KSF is an organization founded by Katie Samson, a championship lacrosse player from Radnor, Pa., who suffered a spinal cord injury after her freshman year at Middlebury College. KSF raises money for people who are paralyzed so that they can afford the adaptive equipment they need to participate in sports.
This year's KSF Lacrosse Festival will take place on April 27, 2019, at Radnor High School. 54 high school lacrosse teams have been invited to participate and each team raises funds to benefit the charity. The daylong event features children's entertainment, food trucks, mascot appearances, face-painting and clowns, in addition to the on-field competitions.
As Samson explains, "This Festival is about Growth: My Personal growth as a young disabled woman, the growth of this amazing day, the growth of research for paralyzed individuals, the growth of the young athletes who come to compete, and most importantly the growth in the awareness that there is life after spinal cord injury."
The LM lacrosse players will be selling raffle tickets as an additional fundraiser.
