A few days in the life of the Michigan Lacrosse team, including the quest for weight room warrior shorts, cheering on starting long stick midfielder and tier 1 frat star Matt Asperheim at the Mud Bowl, and a Twitter message inspired road trip visit from fellow Inside Lacrosse blogger Nick Beattie and some Notre Dame laxers.

Lacrosse Fundraisers: The Third Annual “We Believe Lacrosse Classic” Was Held Nov. 6 In Edgewater, MD To Benefit Cancer Research (Video)
In the opening round of play, the Black team fell to the Red team, while the Green team advanced over the Blue team. Green proceeded to then dominate the championship game, though all players seemed to take a casual and fun attitude towards the afternoon’s events, just enjoying playing some lacrosse with friends.
The We Believe Foundation grew out of a facebook campaign started by Drexel Goalie Matt Miller and his friends after Miller was diagnosed with testicular cancer. Miller is now cancer free.
From there the organization has grown to sponsor this yearly tournament, where four teams of collegiate players, most from DI schools (obviously bolstered by a large contingent of Miller’s teammates from Drexel), compete in three games and a skills competition. All of the players who participated did so in the name of someone they know or care about who has been affected by cancer.
Money raised by the Lacrosse Classic, as well as other funds the foundation amasses through donations and other activities, go towards helping the financial burden levied on young people who have been diagnosed with cancer.
