THE MISSION

The StickWithUs Organization annually supports the Wounded Warrior Project with the Champions Challenge Lacrosse Event. The Champions Challenge features matchups between the best-of-the-best high school teams in the region.

We embrace the WWP mission to honor and empower Wounded Warriors. All proceeds from the day are donated to the Wounded Warrior Project. In addition to a substantial contribution to the WWP on behalf of The StickWithUs Organization, we are actively seeking charitable donations to assist with the cost of producing this first-class lacrosse event. In our first 7 years, we have sent contributions of nearly $150,000 to the WWP.
