Virginia Men's Lacrosse Team Raises Awareness for HELP Line

On Saturday, November 14, 2015, the Virginia Men's Lacrosse Team will host the 7th annual Will Barrow Memorial Flag Football Tournament. The tournament is held each year with proceeds going to Madison House's HELP Line program.

This event remembers Will Barrow, who in his fourth year served as a captain of the 2008 University of Virginia Men's Lacrosse team that advanced to the semifinals of the NCAA Championships. He was considered one of the top defensive midfielders in the country throughout his career. He appeared in 63 games during his UVa career and scored 18 goals with seven assists. Barrow also was a member of the Cavaliers' 2006 NCAA Champion team.

Max Pomper, a teammate and friend of Will, created this event in 2009 to celebrate Will's memory and raise funds for HELP Line. Donations can be made via a GoFundMe campaign created by the players.

HELP Line is a 24-hour confidential and anonymous hotline, supervised by Madison House, for members of the University community. When you call HELP Line, you'll be connected to a trained U.Va. student who will listen to you without judgement. 

The tournament will take place at the University of Virginia's Carr's Hill Field on Saturday, November 14 from 10:00am until 5:00pm. Various lacrosse teams from around the country will gather to play in friendly competition. 

The event is FREE and open to the public. Madison House and the Virginia Men's Lacrosse team encourage the local community to come out and cheer on the players during this positive and fun event!
