(Holmes, PA) – HEADstrong Foundation™ is proud to announce their Spring Cancer Awareness Schedule for 2015. This spring, teams from the ACC, American East, Big 10, Big East, CAA, Ivy, MAAC and Patriot Leagues will further the HEADstrong mission of improving quality of life for cancer patients and their families by wearing HF’s iconic lime green laces, crew socks as well as other accessories during selected games to help raise awareness and funds to support the mission.

“The spring sports schedule runs over the course of several cancer awareness months including: February’s Cancer Prevention Month, March’s Myeloma Awareness Month, April’s Testicular Cancer Awareness Month and May’s Cancer Research Month just to name a few. As an organization committed to changing the game for cancer patients and their families we view the opportunity to raise awareness through team athletics as our social responsibility and are honored to have so many student athletes and college programs involved with our efforts.” says Pat Colleluori, HF CMO and Nick’s Brother

“We are fortunate and thankful to have the continued support of college athletic programs throughout the country. Our Nick was a sophomore at Hofstra University when he was diagnosed and I believe that this resonates with many students. Whether pledging a game, growing mustaches, adopting a patient, interning or showing awareness on the court, ice or playing field, I believe that Nick’s youthful spirit lives on through the efforts of so many young people working together. We are very thankful to be recognized by the NCAA as a charitable organization and we hope that through our efforts this spring that we are able to elevate the visibility of our cause and empower today’s youth to get involved.” says Cheryl Colleluori, HF President and Nick’s Mom
