Johns Creek High School is participating in Lace Up With LAX. This lacrosse game involves lacrosse players, coaches, spectators and the community donating and bringing new pairs of shoes for children who are in need to the game. The mission of this national nonprofit organization is to define the legacy of our players off the field by helping end homelessness one step at a time.” Since Lace Up With LAX’s inception in 2013, over 2000 pairs of NEW shoes have been donated to homeless shelters throughout the United States.
The original project began in 2013 with a single school, Pope High School. Since inception, the Lace Up With LAX model has spread to over 100 teams in high schools, colleges, universities and independent lacrosse programs in the United States, Canada and England mostly by word of mouth or through their website: www.laceupwithlax.org.
Johns Creek High School’s Lace Up With LAX event is open to the public. Each attendee is asked to bring at least one pair of new or “gently used” children’s shoes to the game.
