1st Annual Shoot the Lights Out on Cancer

August 23, 2014 – Spring-Ford High School

A3 HOOPS in conjunction with Philly Coaches vs. Cancer & Spring-Ford HS Girls Basketball hosted the inaugural “Shoot the Lights out on Cancer” free-throw shooting competition.  A day where shooters both young and old, ballers and housewives came together as a community to bring awareness to the fight against cancer.

A3 HOOPS was extremely humbled by the support and outreach we received.  This being our inaugural event, it was difficult to predict how we would do.  This did not stop us from setting a lofty monetary goal of $5,000.00.  With donations still coming in, I am excited to announce we have eclipsed our goal.  This success would not have been possible without the support of the American Cancer Society, Philly Coaches vs. Cancer School Initiative, City Six Coaches, Spring-Ford School District, Crown Trophy, Chambers Printing, Werner Promotions, and all of our volunteers.  Words alone cannot express my gratitude to all those who supported this event and I look forward to crushing our number next year.

We would love to hear from you about the event.  Please email [email protected] with any feedback.
