All The Lead the Way Lacrosse Day of Heroes activities are schedule to proceed as normal with one exception.
Due to restrictions placed by the Federal Aviation Authority and Port Authority of New York, the U.S. Special Operations Daggers and Rangers Parachute Jump at the Lacrosse Day of Heroes is canceled.
ALL OTHER EVENTS OF THE DAY WILL PROCEED AS SCHEDULED!!!
The U.S. Special Operations Daggers and Rangers Parachute Jump will be re-scheduled at a future Lead the Way Fund event.
Both Authorities are expecting a drastic increase in the amount of international air traffic over Long Island this weekend. Flights which had been cancelled due to the Iceland volcano ash clouds will be resuming tomorrow and the descent and ascent paths could be dangerously close to the altitude of the Daggers and Rangers performance. In addition, flight schedules in and out of JFK airport are already compromised due to the re-surfacing of one of their main runways. This will result in further delays over Long Island as planes await the okay for landing.
We sincerely regret the disappointment our supporters will undoubtedly feel, but in the interest of the safety of those in the air and on the ground, the Port Authority and the FAA have obviously made the correct decision.
Again, the U.S. Special Operations Daggers and Rangers Parachute Jump will be re-scheduled at a future Lead the Way Fund event.
Thank you for understanding.
