Lauren's First and Goal Camps set for 2011

Over the Christmas break, my son Bernie gave his verbal to the U.S. Naval Academy. Bernie, I can assure you, never received one bit of interest from Navy before the LFG Camp. It was Mike Judge that noticed him during the lineman 1 on 1īs and began talking to him and eventually myself and my wife. Bernie, being only 6ī2”, found his dream of playing Division 1-A football quickly evaporating from his reach. The LFG Camp at Lafayette Campus IS THE REASON that his dream came true" - Bernie Sarra, Monessen, PA

Laurenīs First and Goal is a 501(c)3 charitable organization, a labor of love started in 2004 by John and Marianne Loose in honor of their daughter, Lauren, a 13-year-old pediatric brain tumor survivor. The Loose family started the foundation as a way to help other families who are battling childhood cancer. Since its inception, LFG has raised more than $800,000 toward its mission to provide financial support for brain tumor research and cancer services, to offer financial and emotional support to families living with pediatric cancer, and to increase awareness of the disease. These goals are made possible through the funding gained through LFG Football Camp and charitable contributions.
