On Saturday May 13, 2017 Schuylerville Youth Lacrosse hosted fourteen boys’ 5th/6th grade teams in a Shootout to benefit the Podkladek family. Mike Podkladek, a husband and father of three children (including Braden who plays goalie for Schuylerville High School) is currently undergoing treatment for brain cancer.
Through community efforts, and the efforts of the region’s extended lacrosse family, Schuylerville Youth Lacrosse was able to write a check to the Podkladek’s for over $8000.00 to help support Mike’s medical expenses and travel to Sloan Kettering in NYC, where he is participating in a clinical trial.
Stephanie Bowen of Schuylerville Youth Lacrosse commented, “We are in shock of that number and it is a testament to the giving nature of everyone involved. The Podkladek’s are extremely grateful for the support of every program on that day.”
