The One Love Foundation was established in 2010 by Sharon and Lexie Love, as well as additional family and friends to honor the memory of Yeardley Reynolds Love. The “One” represents the number Yeardley wore on her jersey during her high school and college lacrosse career. The number has since been retired by the University of Virginia in her memory.

SDSU Lacrosse Charity Goal-A-Thon

How it works:

It is similar to a walk-a-thon at a school. The idea is you sponsor one or multiple teams for every goal scored. For example, if 100 goals are scored and you are sponsoring a $1/goal, then donate $100. You can also sponsor other stats, such as assists, goalie saves, face offs/draws won, ground balls, or penalty minutes.

*For our records please email Charlie Jackson (ctj24@sbcglobal.net) for your Goal-A-Thon pledge.

Subject line: One Love Goal-A-Thon
Name: John Smith
Game: SDSU/Cal Poly; SDSU/USD; BOTH
Team Sponsored: SDSU; USD; Cal Poly; or ALL
$/Stat: $3/Goal, $1/Save
Maximum Cap: Please specify if there is a maximum amount you would like to cap your donation
Contact number: 222-333-4455
The goal-a-thon will work in one of two ways:

1) Sponsor a single game.
*Pick which game you want to sponsor, specify one or both teams, and pick a stat or stats.

2) Sponsor both games.
*Specify one or both teams, pick a stat or stats.

After the games, you will receive an email letting you know your total donation and directions on how you can make your donation; if your donation is more than $250 it is tax deductible and you will receive a letter from the foundation. Please make checks out to ‘The One Love Foundation’. If you have any questions, feel free to email Charlie Jackson (ctj24@sbcglobal.net)
