The 6th Annual Shoot for Christian 3 on 3 basketball tournament in memory of Christian Anthony Craig is Saturday March 17. Christian was killed in a tragic traffic accident in 2006. Christian’s father Jason Craig says they put on the tournament to honor Christian’s memory and love for basketball.
“His passion was basketball and we wanted to honor him and design a fundraiser to do so to use the money to go towards local youth basketball programs. We’d like to donate some of the money for kids to play in local youth leagues that may not be able to afford to otherwise. We also sponsor kids to go to junior high and high school camps and we also give money back to the school that we do the event at.”
Teams need to register now. Christian’s father Jason Craig has you can register on-line.
“We would like to have the registrations in by Friday, March 9th, and those can be sent in to the P.O. Box. It’s on the entry form and the entry form. Then entry form can be found online shootforchristian.com.”
Trophies will be awarded to first and 2nd place finishers in each division. In addition to the 3 on 3 tournament there is also a free throw shootout, a raffle and other ways to support youth basketball by coming out to support the teams. For more information go to shootforChristian.com.
