CHICAGO, IL, September 01, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- True Lacrosse, a national premier lacrosse organization, and Lax.com, a top lacrosse specialty dealer, joined forces to raise funds that will aid in COVID-19 relief for the University of Chicago Medicine.
"We did some research and found The University of Chicago Medicine has been at the forefront of the relief efforts, so we launched a nationwide fundraiser to aid in the battle against COVID-19 in the hard-hit area of greater Chicago," said Sean Finan, vice president of Norwalk-based Lax.com.
True Lacrosse and Lax.com raised over $6,000 to donate to The University of Chicago Medicine. With True Lacrosse corporate offices headquartered in Chicago and it is one of the hotspot areas of the pandemic, the two companies partnered together to raise funds for COVID-19 relief.
True Lacrosse and Lax.com decided to host a fundraiser to reach out to the lacrosse community to provide them with an opportunity to raise funds for their greatly impacted local community. The results of the fundraiser have left both companies delighted and proud to say they are a part of the lacrosse community.
"When the pandemic hit, communities all over the nation came together even though no one could physically be together," explained Jake Deane, co-owner of True Lacrosse. "The harder the virus hit cities, the stronger the hospitals, doctors and nurses fought to protect it. Now, it's our turn to pay it forward to them a little bit."
True Lacrosse and Lax.com presented the donation to the University of Chicago Medicine last week. This fundraiser is just one of the many efforts True Lacrosse and Lax.com have put forth to help those on the frontlines. They are true players in this effort, and both companies are honored to be a part of it.
