Cliff Kigar is a field lacrosse player and is one of many volunteers of Lacrosse the Nations (LtN). LtN is an organization dedicated to strengthening communities across the world through lacrosse. Lacrosse may be simply a sport to some, but to Cliff Kigar and members of LtN, it’s a way to improve worldwide education and health by creating opportunities for children in need.
The core values of Lacrosse the Nations lie in creating autonomous leadership through unified strength. The organization serves as ambassadors of hope by providing underprivileged individuals with an opportunity to engage in an activity that promotes physical, mental, and emotional well-being. In areas with fewer athletic and educational opportunities, Lacrosse the Nations empowers individuals by teaching basic health and nutrition, as well as self-esteem and the importance of education. At the heart of the program is the idea that organized sports fosters natural child development and provides children of all ages and backgrounds with a positive social environment.
