Welcome to the home of CT Falcons!
We are sending up a small team wioth a mixture of U8,and U10 - U12 kids to take part in this great event. We have had such great support from our local community from donations to awesome looking uniforms for the kids. With us being so close to the Naval Subase and many of our kids being from military familes or know someone who serves it really means alot top us for your doantions. We cannot say Thank You enough !!!
Shootout for Soldiers is a 24-hour lacrosse event benefiting wounded American veterans. Every dollar that teams fundraise for the event goes directly to top-rated charities supporting Veterans such as the Gary Sinise Foundation, Semper Fi Fund, Army Ranger Lead the Way Fund and Team RWB.
Some statistics you should know:
- The VA estimates there are nearly 400,000 untreated cases of post-traumatic stress disorder.
- A new VA study finds that 20 veterans commit suicide a day.
- A Rand report estimates that 26% of returning combat veterans may have mental health conditions (PTSD, anxiety, depression).
Thanks so much for your generosity!
