Chicago Shamrox rookie Bill McGlone played last Saturday's National Lacrosse League game against the Philadelphia Lynx for free. He donated his game check to the Headstrong Foundation, an organization that helps fund cancer research, in memory of his former college teammate Nick Colleluori.
“I am donating my salary for the Philadelphia game on Saturday to the Headstrong Foundation on behalf of Nick,” McGlone said. “Even at the end of his remarkable life, Nick was more concerned with everyone else and how they were feeling. I hope that this donation will keep the story of Nick’s memory and what a great person he was.”
The Shamrox organization then donated $5 from tickets for their game with the New York Titans went to the New York Police & Fire Widows’ & Childrens’ Fund.
