The Lebanon High School Girls’ Lacrosse Team was inspired to begin a fund called Not In Our House* through , a well known local organization that wants to end gender-based violence through survivor-centered advocacy, prevention, education and mobilization for social change. Your donations allow WISE to provide extracurricular and community engagement opportunities to children who experience domestic violence or sexual abuse within their home. According to The Nation’s Leading Grassroots Voice, “1 in 15 children are exposed to intimate partner violence each year, and 90% of these children are eyewitnesses to this violence.” Our team is proud that this fund continues to be built up every season by the efforts of the current girls' lacrosse team and their coach. We hope to expand this fund so children in our community will continue to benefit from our efforts for many years to come.
This year, the 2018 Lebanon Girls’ Lacrosse Team is excited to announce that we will be hosting a Capture the Flag fundraising event! Our goal is to get students from all over the Upper Valley to join and support children in our community.

* The Not In Our House Fund was established by the Lebanon Girls’ Lacrosse team. In 2012, the team and coach were devastated by the loss of a teacher, Natalie Perriello, when she fell victim to domestic violence. This tragic event shook the entire community and touched many community members whether they had established a relationship with Natalie or not.
