Tonight, the team had the awesome privilege of hearing from FSU alum, Mike “Papi” Wein, founder of Brady’s Bunch.
Brady’s Bunch Lacrosse is a non-profit organization whose mission through lacrosse is to raise awareness of children’s cancer, funds for research and for children and families who suffer from cancer. It was founded in honor of Papi’s three-month old son, Brady, who was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer known as Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML).
Doctors told the Weins they’d have to say goodbye to Brady at the age of two. Brady is currently nine years old and loves to play lacrosse. Brady’s Bunch was established to provide more opportunities to youth and teens suffering from illnesses throughout the country. Today, through a unique integration of lacrosse, they choose to “Play For Someone Else” in solidarity for children fighting cancer. Papi encourages his players to approach every rep and every sprint as their last in honor of children who may never have the opportunity to do so.
We appreciate you coming out, Papi. Also, feel free to visit bradysbunchlacrosse.org if you’re interested in donating. #OneTeam
