Cannons Fighting Cancer is an initiative to unite the lacrosse, medical and research communities to raise funds and awareness for philanthropic and research organizations that are focused on finding a cure for cancer and providing services, support and care for individuals and families who are impacted by the disease. This event includes a ceremony for a special group of nominated fans who are making an impact in the fight against cancer dubbed the "Cannons Champions for Cancer," a presentation for the Bruce Lerch Scholarship, a season-long fundraising initiative and on-field recognition for the "Cannons Champions." The Boston Cannons hosted this year's Cannons Fighting Cancer game during the August 4th, 2018 match up verse the Ohio Machine.
