The Salt Shakerz are releasing their Custom Warrior Riot Gloves to the general lacrosse public, and since we remember the rabble roused around their past pink helmet offering, we knew our readers would be interested in this as well! Not only do you get a great pair of pink gloves, but you help raise proceeds for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in NYC on October 20th – 21st!
Almost a year ago, the Salt Shakerz and Warrior Lacrosse teamed up to create a custom pair of Warrior Riot gloves that were exclusive to the team, and pink in every way. Much like the all pink helmets, there was strong interest from fans in the broader lacrosse community, so being the great guys that they are, the Shakerz will be offering the gloves to the public for a limited period of time.
But of course, as we alluded to above, the Salt Shakerz are taking it one step further! Proceeds will help support the Shakerz and their Annual Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, which is scheduled for October 20th – 21st in New York City. Gloves can be ordered through Lacrosse Unlimited (Available through September 9th 2012) here.

As mentioned earlier, the Salt Shakerz have committed to participate in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer (which takes place on October 20th-21st) in New York City for 2012. The Shakerz hope the turnout from the Shakerz community is bigger than last year! And more importantly, the Shakerz have set an ambitious fundraising goal of $3,000, and they need your help!
Breast cancer is a big disease, one that still affects far too many people, and the boys in pink are determined to do everything they can to help put an end to it. The money raised will be managed and disbursed by the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade to help provide access to care for those that most need it, fund educational programs, and accelerate research into new treatments and potential cures.
The Salt Shakerz community is a vibrant one, and while they love their lacrosse in a major way, that commitment to the game carries over into their daily lives. Their slogan is “lax often”, but they also “donate often”, and we support that!
