Coach White Represents RHIT at Football Camps

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- Offensive Coordinator Brian White represented Rose-Hulman Football at two Lauren's First and Goal Football Camps last week.  Just 12 years after the idea of Lauren's First and Goal Foundation was conceived, the nonprofit organization announced it has surpassed more than $2 million raised. The annual high school football camps at Lafayette College and Otterbein University, held June 4-5, helped LFG reach the milestone.

The camp at Lafayette College in Easton, Pa., just completed its 13th annual event for student-athletes entering grades 9-12. Nearly 2,000 campers from 15 states and Canada received instruction in a variety of offensive and defensive skills from more than 360 college coaches from around the country.

Camp registrations and donations in Pennsylvania resulted in more than $120,000 raised, which set a record for donations supporting the foundation's mission of funding pediatric brain tumor research and patient services and assisting families living with the disease. As of December 2015, the foundation has awarded $1.6 million to pediatric research, patient services and families.

The camp at Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio had approximately 300 student-athletes participate in the seventh-annual Ohio Lauren's First and Goal Football Camp on Saturday, June 4. The event, welcoming high school players across 12 states, raised more than $12,000 for pediatric brain tumor research for the third-straight summer.

The football camps are just one way that people can support Lauren's First and Goal. Visit Lauren's Circle of Strength to learn more about additional opportunities to get involved. Follow the latest foundation news on Twitter and Facebook.
