Take Your Best Shot

To celebrate March Madness and raise important funds to support nonprofits in the Triangle, three local nonprofits – the Emily K Center, the SECU Family House, and the Velle Cares Foundation –  are participating in and promoting the Take Your Best Shot challenge. Each nonprofit is encouraging their supporters and the broader community to support their organization while “competing” against the other nonprofits to raise money and awareness for our work in the community.

We encourage everyone to participate in this fun challenge by filming your best trick basketball shot (or any other kind of “shot”), posting it on social media using #TakeYourBestShot, and making a gift to the organization of your choice.

The mission of the Velle Cares Foundation is to serve and assist community based organizations that promote health, education, and life skills for children and families in at-risk situations.
