Lax2Live Lacrosse

Lax2Live Lacrosse Games

Brian Dagle loved playing lacrosse yet he like many other athletes struggled with depression, anxiety, and hopelessness.

The Lax2Live Lacrosse Games are regular-season high school or college lacrosse games with the focus on creating mental health and suicide awareness between the athletes, coaches, and fans.

At each event, there is a pre-game conversation about mental health and suicide prevention. The Brian Dagle Foundation provides booths with resource materials, educational games and information about programs for anyone who may be struggling or looking for ways to support others.

A short presentation on the risk and warning signs of suicide is given at half-time. Lacrosse players receive Lax2Live t-shirts and are encouraged in school to talk about the Lax2Live games.

We are currently scheduling the 2020 Lax2Live games. For more information please email [email protected]

The Dagle Family of East Lyme lost their son and brother Brian to suicide in November of 2011. The public strength and resolve Brian's parents Ann and Paul have shown since is remarkable. This is the story of a family, a favorite sport and a mission to prevent suicide. Brian Dagle Foundation and Brian's Healing Hearts Center for Hope & Healing #Lax2Live
