Shootout for Soldiers: Long Island, NY
Jul 18, 2019 - Jul 19, 2019
Shootout for Soldiers is a 24 hour lacrosse game benefiting wounded American military members. The event is fun. It’s not a tournament, nor is it about recruiting. The event is all about supporting those who serve our country. There are 24 1-hour games. There are two teams: Stars and Stripes, and registered players will be grouped into either team once they register. The score is cumulative!
Our Mission: To use lacrosse as a platform to support American veterans and foster community engagement.
Our Approach: We EDUCATE the community about the challenges Veterans face when returning home. We share authentic first-person narratives from Veterans as well as curate learning resources and materials addressing the issues. We ENGAGE the civilian and military communities at the event to foster empathy and understanding. We also foster online discussion and conversation to bridge the gap between a younger millennial generation and our Veterans. We AMPLIFY the work of leading non-profits in the space through funding their programs, projects and operations. We also use our platform online to develop and share authentic media addressing Veteran issues and topics.
