New York City ballers can hit the court for a great cause this summer, as the first annual Hoops 4 Hope East Coast 3v3 tournament is set to take place on July 28th from 9am-3pm at Baruch College!
The event is being held to raise money for and awareness about Juvenile Dermatomyositis (JDMS) — a rare autoimmune disease that breaks down blood cells within muscle systems — and to keep the memory of Christina Powery, who passed away from JDMS in 2005, alive.
A portion of benefits will go towards two nonprofits: the Cure JM Foundation and AlsoTouch Foundation.
Any hoopers older than 16, male or female, can enter the tournament. Competitors will be divided into beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels.
