Here at Rensselaer we are passionate about giving back to our nation’s service members – the few who fight to protect the freedom of this great country. Often times many of these inspiring individuals come home with wounds you can and can’t see, like a missing limb, combat stress, or depression. Because they’ve risked everything for us, we are committed to raising awareness and funds for these wounded service members and their caregivers.
We are proud to host an event benefiting an organization whose mission is to honor and empower Wounded Warriors. Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) has a big, audacious goal: to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history. We are challenging ourselves to help WWP reach this vision, and in doing so we ask for your help.
The Fourth Annual Face Off for a Cause (FOFAC) Lacrosse Tournament will be held at our very own East Campus Athletic Village. The past three FOFAC Events have been held at Siena College, with last year's event raising around $21,000. We are excited to have the men's lacrosse programs of Siena, Colgate, New York IT, Bentley, Western New England, Skidmore, and Union join us for a day of competition to honor the men and women who have served in the United States Armed Forces.
WWP offers 20 holistic programs to wounded service members and their caregivers completely free of charge and 100% of the funds raised through the this event go directly to Wounded Warrior Project to help fuel these programs.
