DELHI, N.Y. (November 21, 2017) -- SUNY Delhi head coach Sam Miller and his men's lacrosse team have certainly been growing team interest over the last several months. Now, they are growing for a different reason, and need your help. Over the last month, the Broncos have been growing their mustaches to raise funds and awareness for families affected by cancer as part of The Headstrong Foundation's Lax Stache Madness.
SUNY Delhi is one of dozens of intercollegiate men's lacrosse teams across America that are participating in Lax Stache Madness. This puts them among the likes of distinguished programs such as Towson, Utah, Brown, Maryland, Bucknell and Princeton. All of the teams involved have set a combined goal of $227,000.

About Lax Stache Madness:
"Lax Stache Madness is an interactive online fundraiser encouraging student-athletes to TOSS their razors, GROW their mustaches, go HEAD to HEAD against teams country and RAISE money to HELP families. Lax Stache Madness was created by former professional lacrosse player Ken Clausen while attending the University of Virginia. Marketed around his signature mustache, he believed that growing facial hair was a great way to make a difference while paying tribute to HEADstrong founder Nicholas Colleluori.
Colleluori was a Division I lacrosse player entering his sophomore year at Hofstra University when he was terminally diagnosed with cancer. His public fight from the sidelines captivated the nation and from his hospital bed he created an organization focused on empowering student-athletes to improve lives affected by the disease. After enduring 14 months of treatment, Colleluori tossed his razor and grew a mustache in the last weeks of his life as a way to take focus off of his apparent weight loss and declining physical appearance. In an uncontrollable situation, Colleluori's mustache was a humorous way for him to feel "normal" again. Just as Colleluori did, beginning October 19th college lacrosse players nationwide will toss their razors to honor their fallen brother and compete in Lax Stache Madness™; a 6-week online fundraising challenge with proceeds supporting families affected by cancer. The campaign dates are significant as they mark Colleluori's birthday 10/19 and the date of his passing 11/28."
