Gains for Brain 2024

The Gains for Brains Lacrosse Tournament returns in 2024 for year number EIGHT and we are SUPER excited for some extraordinary games!

In addition to providing some of the best girls lacrosse in the country, our goal is to raise money and awareness for the Making Headway Foundation. Throughout the last 7 tournaments, we’ve raised nearly $70,000! We are not stopping now! It’s an outstanding charity, so we’re looking to double that number this year.

What is the Making Headway Foundation? It’s a fantastic organization that helps children diagnosed with brain and spinal cord tumors. They provide care and comfort for the kids while also funding medical research geared toward better treatments and a cure. To continue as in years past, we are making it easy to contribute to the cause. That’s why this page was set up; every little bit helps!


WHERE & WHEN: The Gains for Brains Lacrosse Tournament will be held Saturday, April 27 (rain date of Sunday, April 28) at Cold Spring Harbor High School. For details, matchups, and to learn more about Gains for Brains, visit

All Proceeds from this event will go directly to the Making Headway Foundation, an organization dedicated to the care, comfort and cure of children with brain and spinal cord cancers. Making Headway is unique in that it funds clinical research paving the way for cancer treatments in our future, as well as supportive services that patients need now. Both are critical elements in our efforts to move the needle on cancer care.
