Pro Lacrosse Team Helps Fight Child Abuse

The Portland Lumberjax, a member of the professional indoor National Lacrosse League, are teaming up with the Children's Trusts Fund of Oregon and Dark Horse Comics (a major comic publisher) to create a comic book intended to help raise awareness regarding the prevention of child abuse.

The story features Jax transition player Adam Bysouth, defenseman Brodie Merrill and goalie Dallas Eliuk discussing the issue of child abuse which affects over 900,000 children every year.

"This opportunity was appealing to the LumberJax, because not only are we able to partner with two reputable organizations, but it is a unique and creative way to raise awareness about this nationwide issue," Bysouth explained.

The plans are for 20,000 copies of the comic book to be distributed across the state.
