Walk for Matt
We thank all those who walked and contributed to the Club's 2014 Brain Injury Walk on April 27 in Jon Duerr Forest Preserve in South Elgin. The Walk raised more than $5600 in support of the Brain Injury Association of Illinois (BAIA), and was coordinated by StC Board member Peggy Williams. (See Connie O'Brien's Walk photos here.)
Our 2013 Walk was in honor of Matt “Huff Daddy” Huffman, who passed away due to head trauma in August 2012. Matt’s death was a great loss to our lacrosse family. “Huff Daddy” played for Saint Charles Lacrosse from 2007 to 2010, and was a member of the StC State Semifinal team in 2009 and 2010. In 2012 he returned to the Club as an Assistant Coach for the StC Girls JV team. Our 2014 Walk to Support BIAI is in honor of Matt Huffman and Kyle Slinker, a 2012 graduate of St Charles North High School who died due to head trauma after a traffic accident in April 2014. Like Matt, Kyle’s zeal for life was matched only by his sense of humor. Kyle led a life full of love and kindness, and no-one who met him will ever forget his megawatt smile.
