One imagines that the Shootout for Soldiers travelling crew is a bit road-weary at this point, having staged four successful 24 hours of lacrosse events already in 2015. But the longest drive is ahead of them, as they embark on the 40-odd hours of driving that will take them to their fifth and final event of the summer – in California.
Thus far, SFS has raised a whopping $384,956 for wounded veterans in four events. Baltimore – the longest-running – started things off with $201,130 raised. New stops in Boston ($26,170) and Ohio ($45,065) kept things rolling, with Long Island getting things back to six figures in its second edition with a $112,491 total just two days ago.
The California shootout will take place at Dana Hills HS in Dana Point on July 31-August 1, so founder Tyler Steinhardt and the rest of the crew should have plenty of time to unwind a bit as they head westward in their RV.
