A Shot For Life founder Mike Slonina has announced plans for a 24-hour basketball game to raise money and awareness for cancer. The ASFL Gauntlet will take place on November 11th at the University Sports Complex in Hanover. The Gauntlet is a 24-hour long basketball game meant to be symbolic of the struggle that cancer patients go through. This event is open to players of all ages - adults wanted.
From Slonina's press release: "Each player has a $5,000 fundraising goal, however, I want to make it clear that that’s just the goal that we want all of the players to strive for and do their best to reach. Nothing happens to the player if they come in lower than $5,000. This event is essentially a basketball pan mass challenge/Boston Marathon but the major difference is that we do not require a credit card the way those events do. We appreciate everyone involved and will not be charging a credit card or anything like that. Truthfully, $5,000 is a lot more intimidating of a number to raise than it is in actual practice. One of our participants auctioned off a golf outing and raised $2,500 in one night last week.
If anyone has any questions or wants further clarification I can be reached at this email or 617-953-2312. We want to get as many people as possible welcomed into the ASFL Community through this event.
