My name is Mike Slonina and I'm the founder of A Shot For Life. We raise the money for the ASFL Challenge through this gofundme page for all of the shooters in our program. To donate in the name of a specific shooter, simply comment their name when making a donation.
The A Shot For Life Challenge is a hybrid of a highly competitive basketball event and a fundraiser. The money raised by the ASFL Challenge benefits brain cancer research at the Massachusetts General Hospital Dr. Curry Research Lab.
Specifically, we fund an immunotherapy trial where Dr. Curry extracts cancer cells, manipulates them, and then reinjects those cells back into the patient. He is about to be published in a neuro-oncology journal for his findings that A Shot For Life paid for entirely. The funds from this event will be used to further his research and continue the trials that we have been funding since 2011.
To be a shooter selected into the A Shot For Life Challenge is a long and competitive process. While many of our events are open to anyone, the ASFL Challenge is not one of them. Each of our players is highly talented and displays great character off of the floor. Each player has committed to raising money as a part of being in our program which speaks volumes about who they are.
The event will take place on August 5th at the University Sports Complex in Hanover. The winner of the event is officially named "The Best Shooter in Massachusetts".
