The Casey Powell World Lacrosse Foundation’s (CPWLF) executive board members have appointed Rachel Zietz, CEO of Gladiator Lacrosse, as the newest board member, adding to the existing panel of nine lacrosse leaders.
The CPWLF is a non-profit organization created to support severely injured or sick lacrosse players and is similarly aimed on supporting lacrosse players, coaches, organizers and enthusiasts from all over the globe. Founded by Casey Powell, an international lacrosse icon and MVP of Major League Lacrosse, Powell has dedicated his passion for lacrosse on the field and within his organization. “My commitment to the future of the sport is the core driver of CPWLF”, said Casey Powell, founder of CPWLF. “Rachel embodies the spirit of lacrosse and brings talent, expertise and energy to the table.

The Casey Powell World Lacrosse Foundation's mission is to motivate, share and support the game of lacrosse worldwide. It helps provide a venue to promote the awareness of good causes, to raise funds for those in need and to support lacrosse families affected by the recovery process. It’s no doubt the foundation recruited Zietz as the latest board member as she exhibits the same determination to give back to the community. Gladiator Lacrosse has donated several lacrosse items for auction to raise funds for educational purposes and has also donated equipment to the underprivileged, to leagues in various cities and schools throughout the US and internationally.
