Building Blocks Lacrosse Camps Help Fund Friends of Jaclyn

Thursday, July 10, 2014 • 3:24pm

Building Blocks Lacrosse (BBL) presented Jaclyn and Denis Murphy with a donation from their camp proceeds for the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation to further FOJ’s mission of fostering awareness of pediatric brain tumors and improving the quality of life for the children suffering from them.

“FOJ is an organization that some of our players are aware of since many college sport teams from around the country “adopt” a FOJ child for their team. At BBL we think that it is very important for all of our players, both academy students and elite travel team members, to think of others. By partnering with FOJ, we are providing the community with a fun way to learn more about the game of lacrosse while helping a good cause” explained Andrew Hubschmann, founder of BBL.

Jaclyn presented prizes to certain campers who exemplified good sportsmanship and worked hard to improve their lacrosse skills. The “Live for the Moment” prize was awarded to Meryl Schaffer who the coaches felt embodied the spirit of FOJ. Her prize was a signed, enlarged copy of Jaclyn’s special trading card that was recently created especially for her by Upper Deck as a part of their  “Heroic Inspirations” trading cards. Each camper received a FOJ T-shirt and a trading card.

Building Blocks Lacrosse (BBL) is a local, year-round academy that offers training in both Gillette and West Orange, while headquartered in downtown Madison. As the only academy in NJ with a specialized player development program, they offer classes for students from beginner to D1 lacrosse players. BBL summer camps are unique in that they do not just offer generic camps by grade. Instead, players can choose from a variety based on their level of experience and position such as  “Learnin and Luvin, Position Specific and “Ninja” camps, or even participate in a new summer box lacrosse league.
