Not only will Philly be hosting a star-studded event tomorrow, it more importantly will be doing so with the purpose of benefitting a great cause. The founder of the event, Jordan Page, has put together a skills challenge, three-point and dunk contest that will feature some of the top recruits in the Northeast. The proceeds, however, will go to the Children Hospital of Philadelphia, a place that Page holds dear to his heart. Below Page tells his story and breaks down the roster.

The Triple Double Showcase will take place on Saturday March 21st at Holy Family University in Philadelphia, PA. (9801 Frankford Ave.).  Some of the nation’s best prep players will compete in a dunk, skills, and 3-point contest. Tickets are $10. Proceeds will go to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

 

CHOP means a lot to me because in 2009 I was a patient with a life threatening condition. During preseason football in high school I collapsed on the field with trainers believing I was dehydrated. After an ER visit and several IV Fluids later, I took a CT scan and a tumor was found. The tumor I had was a colloid cyst. I was rushed to CHOP overnight and all I could think of was missing my football team and missing school. Through God, my family and friends reaching out, I pushed through. I was alarmed when doctors told my mom to sign a waiver warning her of sudden death. I was able to have a successful surgery and my neurologist told me how lucky I was because the tumor I had is usually fatal.

 

I went on in life and became a 3-star football recruit and just kept pushing. I’ve always wanted to give back to CHOP and the Triple Double Showcase is the perfect way.

 

Many celebrities will be in attendance judging the dunk contest and I’m extremely excited for the talent on tap.
