For the second year, Les’s Fund-Lacrosse Fans Fighting Cancer, the Toronto Rock and the National Lacrosse League (NLL), proudly present *Pledge a Player 2008.*
The lacrosse community continues their cancer-fighting tradition with Pledge a Player 2008. Just click on the *Pledge a Player* link and you will be able to pledge money directly towards local cancer charities in your area and across the National Lacrosse League, based on the game performance of your favourite NLL player or team.
We’ve added an exciting new feature as you can now pledge multiple players or teams and select multiple charities to donate to.
Here’s an example of how it works:
You pledge $1 to your chosen charity for every goal your favourite player will score in the regular season. If he scores 40 regular-season goals, at the end of the regular season, you send a cheque for $40 directly to your chosen charity.
All we ask is that you acknowledge your donation is being made as a result of the Toronto Rock and Les’s Fund- Lacrosse Fans Fighting Cancer Pledge a Player program. Once you’ve sent in your donation directly to your charity, they will ensure you receive a tax receipt for your full donation amount.
Les’s Fund-Lacrosse Fans Fighting Cancer is recognized as the National Lacrosse League’s official cancer fighter by the Toronto Rock, the NLL’s and its players. Les’s Fund is a fan organized, grass roots, non-profit movement created to promote cancer awareness, and aid in the fight against cancer across the lacrosse and greater community.
Les’s Fund is named after Les Bartley, the Toronto Rock’s Hall of Fame and 5 time Champion Lacrosse coach and general manager. Les lent his name and support to fans efforts to raise money to fight cancer. Les passed away on May 15th 2005 and since that time the fans and teams of the NLL have carried the torch in the fight against cancer with pride and remembrance.
Through Pledge a Player you can show your support for your favourite NLL player or team and fight cancer in your area and across North America at the same time! We hope you join us in 2008 for the Rock & Les’s Funds’ sixth year of cancer fighting!
