My name is Lucia Sanchez. I am a senior at Lewiston-Porter High School and captain of the girls varsity lacrosse team. The girls lacrosse team is proud to be organizing a 5K race to support the Mason FOREVER Foundation. The event is scheduled for June 2 at 6:30 p.m. at Artpark State Park.
The Mason FOREVER Foundation was formed in memory of my teammate Logan Monteleone’s brother, Mason Monteleone. Mason, 21, was a junior on the dean's list at Florida State University, majoring in interdisciplinary medical sciences, when he tragically died in a car accident on Aug. 28, 2020.
All proceeds raised will support students with passions similar to Mason’s by providing scholarships and donations. Sports, physical health, mental health and education were the core of his being. Mason played for Lewiston-Porter Youth Football and Niagara Pioneer Travel Soccer. He also participated in soccer, basketball, wrestling and track while in middle school at Lewiston-Porter. Mason attended Canisius High School where he played soccer, rugby and wrestling, and was a member of the state champion Canisius High School football team.
We are currently seeking sponsors to help support and raise money for the Mason FOREVER Foundation and Mason FOREVER 5K. We know that our efforts will go farther with your support promoting this cause! Please feel free to contact me for more information.
I look forward to hearing from you! Lucia Sanchez: 716-697-2697.
