Each year, the Colorado Mammoth of the NLL give back to the community through a ‘Lacrosse Out Cancer’ night during one of their home games, to help raise support and awareness for all different types of cancer. This year, they each wore helmets gussied up by HeadWrapz, which donned the names of Mammoth fans and loved ones whose lives have been affected by cancer. The ‘I’m Playing For…’ campaign made this year’s event very special for several of the players.
The video below features a few of the Mammoth players discussing how they’ve been personally affected by cancer and what this event means to them. This cause hits very close to home for Mammoth Forward Jordan McBride in particular, who lost his mother to cancer and was able to wear her name on his helmet. The helmets were then auctioned off in support of cancer awareness and unbeknownst to Jordan, his Uncle purchased the helmet he wore – very special!
If you were watching CBS Sports this past weekend you may have been able to catch the game live and see the pink HeadWrapz decals on each of the Mammoth players’ helmets. Each one featured a unique name of that of a cancer patient, survivor, or one who lost their battle. The headwrap itself was pink with a lavender ribbon on it which is a symbol of cancer awareness.
Check out some pics of the HeadWrapz in action and on TV below.
