Mercer Island Lacrosse Club boys recently participated in the WA Love “Play for a Cause” Lacrosse Jamboree. This event was organized by the Washington Lacrosse Foundation to support families in the lacrosse community who have recently faced tragedy or illness.
This year’s event honored the family of Chris Hall of the Orting Lacrosse Club. Hall was a long-time coach, administrator and volunteer in the south Puget Sound lacrosse community, as well as a tireless member of the Washington Chapter of U.S. Lacrosse, and an 18-plus year veteran of the Seattle Police Department. Hall was recently diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic colon cancer and died after a brief battle with this illness.
He left behind his wife Dani and three children: Connor (15), Logan (13) and Maddie (11). Seven lacrosse teams from Mercer Island, grades 3-12 participated in the WA Love tournament. This campaign achieved its goal of raising $25,000 in support of the Hall family. Mercer Island Lacrosse Club players are active in many areas supporting their community through volunteer efforts and fundraising.
