Editor’s Note: On October 15th and 16, the Salt Shakerz Lacrosse Club will join the Avon Walk For Breast Cancer. So not only do the Shakerz love to lax, but they also love to DO GOOD THINGS! And this crazy world we live in, we just love seeing lax dudes take on charity work like this. It’s all with a smile! We’ve got a little write up from the Shakerz to explain what they are doing, and why it is so special to them.
The Salt Shakerz continue to make big noise, but this time it’s “off the field” and for a much bigger cause!
The Salt Shakerz have committed to participate in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer (which takes place on October 15th-16th) in New York City for 2011. We hope the turnout from the Shakerz community is bigger than last year! And more importantly, the Shakerz have set an ambitious fundraising goal of $3,000, and are only a few hundred dollars away with over a month to go!
Breast cancer is a big disease, one that still affects far too many people, and the boys in pink are determined to do everything they can to help put an end to it.
The money raised will be managed and disbursed by the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade to help provide access to care for those that most need it, fund educational programs, and accelerate research into new treatments and potential cures.
You too can make a donation to Shakerz fundraising campaign! (Details below)

About the Salt Shakerz: The Salt Shakerz Lacrosse club is a post-collegiate traveling lacrosse team originating out of the New York City metro area. The Shakerz came together in the fall of 2008 when CJ Greene (Villanova University 00′) and Co. began talking about putting a competitive team together of “good guys” both on and off the field to play in the New York area. The name ‘Salt Shakerz” is derived from the expression; ‘Pass the Salt’—or in Lax vernacular ‘keep it hot,’ ‘Spin it,’ or ‘one more’. The moniker pays homage to what the club likes to embody: unselfish and tasty play.
It goes without saying that people like to lax with guys they get along with, and that has been the goal of the team since day one. Obviously everyone wants to win, but for this group, no one player has been bigger than the team. That being said, the club still puts together a talented squad. The Salt Shakerz roster includes current and former MLL, NLL, and LXM Pro Players-all the way to college club and MCLA guys. The Shakerz rotate playing in the various tournaments based on the event and geography.
