Ballers Against Ballisms Shoot-a-thon: Help People with Huntington's Disease Event!!!!!

posted Nov 3, 2010, 9:26 AM by Angela Shambarger
To UNE undergraduates and graduate students,

Want to prove  your skills on the basketball court, and at the same time, help people  with a devastating disease? Then sign up for the Ballers Against Ballisms  Shoot-a-thon to help People with Huntington's Disease, presented by the UNECOM Emergency Medicine Club, and the Huntington's Disease Society of America. The event is taking place from 6-10 PM on November 15th, 2010 in the Campus Center Gymnasium.  Just ask your family and friends to sponsor you for a certain amount  per shot (like 25 cents a shot) or have them give you a lump sum 
donation. On the day of the shoot-a-thon, you have 30 minutes to take  100 foul shots with a partner rebounding, and the amount you make is the  amount your sponsors donate.

To make it interesting, the player  with the highest number of made shots can put something on their  bookshelf that really stands out: The 2010 Ballers Against Ballisms  Championship Trophy. Prizes will also be given out to 2nd and 3rd place  winners as well.

If you're interested in signing up, see the attached flier for details, as well as background information on Huntington's Disease, Huntington's Disease Society of America, and the First-Giving website that will collect the donations for the event.

Sign-ups  can be made through the following link, but be sure to sign up your  rebounder/partner as well, who should also be a shooter in the event:

(Sign-ups are FIRST COME FIRST SERVE for 48 slots, so sign up while you can!)

Good luck, and thank you for making a difference in the lives of people with Huntington's Disease. 

Please contact Justin Etter, with any questions about the event.
