Alternative United's "Run with the Pack"

Alternative United, a basketball team made up of students from Montreal's Outreach high schools, is organizing a fundraiser for their trip to watch the Toronto Raptors in February 2023. They will donate most of the proceeds to suicide prevention and to a new non-profit organization called Avenues geared towards helping students get connected with community resources after high school.

The team has set out to do 100 shuttle runs, formerly known as "suicide drills", during every practice for the rest of the season. They will also do a set after every game, inviting other teams from around the league to join them. The Pit Bulls are aiming for a total of 10,000 shuttle runs, with the help of the broader community, in the hopes of raising money for workshops with Suicide Action Montreal in their schools.

You can support the initiative by donating directly to the GoFundMe drive, by ordering a "Run with the Pack" t-shirt, or by attending the team's charity fundraiser game later this month at McGill. Details to come!
