About Project 120
“Project 120” is a tournament that will give back to a non-profit or cause every year. A DIRECT PERCENTAGE of your registration fee will go towards a “project” that is benefiting the lacrosse community. You will NOT have to do any additional fundraising as part of your entrance into the tournament. Your support will directly offer a positive impact!
In 2017 we are honored to host the Live Like Blaine Foundation. Live Like Blaine (LLB) honors Blaine Steinberg, an accomplished athlete, student, and leader who passed away suddenly in March 2014, just two weeks before her 21st birthday. Its mission is to empower and inspire young women to become leaders through fitness and athletics. By sharing Blaine’s spirit with young female athletes and leaders, LLB aims to help them see life as a series of opportunities rather than hurdles. Through their FIT TO LEAD program, LLB creates and supports projects that encourage women to lead by example with Blaine’s combination of grace and determination. The programs that comprise FIT TO LEAD help young female athletes realize the power of positivity, grow in confidence in their capabilities, and create a powerful platform for leadership development.
Project 120 has chosen to support this extraordinary foundation, as empowering young women is one of our founding principles. Our mission is to enhance the game, and support the development of strong successful female athletes. Over the course of the Project 120 tournament weekend, LLB will offer workshops to all participants. These workshops will focus on developing leadership skills our female athletes can apply on and off the field.
LLB Foundation will be offering clinics and sessions on leadership and empowering the female athlete for teams on Saturday, June 24th. Please CLICK HERE to SIGN UP your team for a SESSION!
2013 was our inaugural event, and we partnered with Find the Courage. Find The Courage (FTC) is a non-profit who empowers, educates and inspires people to make a positive impact in the community. Find the Courage provides programs that give people effective strategies to be positive leaders promoting kindness, inclusion, encouragement, compassion, and respect to all people.
“We (FTH) are are so grateful and so thankful, for so many different reasons. We are truly humbled to have had the opportunity to have been a part of your Project 120, as well as the very lucky recipient of your generosity. The energy and excitement of the tournament, along with the outdoor venue mixed with the teams, families, coaches and staff was alone such a powerful and inspiring first experience for our organization.
While we were at the tournament we had an 8th grader on crutches crutch up to our table to learn more about FTC. She was on a lacrosse team but couldn’t play that weekend, but attended the tournament to figure out how she could bring FTC to her school. Since then she has gathered more information regarding the program, reached out to her assistant principal and had an in person meeting with him, and just set up a call between me and her school to bring FTC to her school next year. She has beyond inspired me with her leadership and desire to bring a positive message to her school, and none of this would have been possible without Project 120.”
–Molly Creamer, Executive Director, Find the Courage
2014 we supported the One Love Foundation! This foundation was established in 2010 to honor the memory of Yeardley Reynolds Love. The “One” represents the number Yeardley wore on her jersey during her high school and college lacrosse career. The mission of this foundation is to end relationship violence through education and technology. In addition, it wants to keep Yeardley’s spirit alive in everyone they touch by promoting strength of character and service.
“Thank you for your contribution. Your generosity helps further or work towards the ambitious and important goal of ending relationship violence. This work could not be done without the critical support of people like you (Project 120). Thank you for being a part of our team.”
–Sharon Donnelly Love, Cofounder & Trustee
2015 we came together for Lacrosse the Nations! LtN unifies the lacrosse community to sustainably improve education and health while creating hope and opportunity for children in need. They have brought their foundation to the international communities as well as at home. Over 1000 students per week participate in PE and after school lacrosse programs that help teach work ethic, motivation, response to failure, ability to work with others, confidence and self-awareness. We were thrilled to help support their cause through Project 120 in 2015!
“Thank you for choosing LtN to be the beneficiary of the tournament. Not only did it help to support our initiatives, but we were able to make great connections on the days we were in Lehigh. In fact, one of the high schoolers we talked to has decided to start an LtN Club in NJ and wants to work in conjunction with the Boys and Girls Club to do it! Without your support this would never have happened!”
–Javier Silva, Executive Director
