Lace Up With LAX is dedicated to defining the legacy of lacrosse players off the field by working to provide children who are homeless a new pair of shoes and in turn, a step to a brighter future.
How we began... When we first started Lace Up With LAX, our goal was to provide as many new shoes to children who are homeless as possible. The ultimate goal is to help end the cycle of homelessness. In late April 2013, one of our players father's was driving to work south of the airport. As he passed a public housing complex and some children were waiting for a school bus, he noticed that one of the boys was wearing a 2013 Lace Up With LAX t-shirt. Knowing that the child was waiting for a bus in his own neighborhood and not a shelter, this showed us that our mission IS working...one pair of shoes at a time.
