20151004_155548_resizedWelcome to the 4th Annual ‘Stoga 5v5 Lax Fest, which will feature a day full of fun and competitive lacrosse. Games will be played in a small-sided round robin format.

The event, organized and hosted by Conestoga Girls and Boys Lacrosse, promises to attract many teams from the Greater Philadelphia area. The Lax Fest will be staged in a fun and festive setting with contests, skills competition, food, refreshments, vendors, prizes and other activities!

20151004_155257_resizedThe event will help raise money for the Fighting Back Scholarship Program and its Peter Kienzle Fund in particular. Fighting Back is an organization based in Malvern that assists individuals who are recovering from a life-changing illness or injury and are without the finances needed to participate in a rehabilitative exercise program.

Interested sponsors are invited to support the event. Click here for more information about sponsorship, the Pete Kienzle Fund and the Fighting Back Scholarship Program.
