A Shot For Life Roster Announced

A Shot For Life, Inc. is pleased to announce the roster of our seventh annual A Shot For Life Challenge. The event is a hybrid of a highly competitive basketball shooting competition and a fundraiser. The winner of the A Shot For Life Challenge is officially named “The Best Shooter in Massachusetts” and their jersey number will be retired on the wall overlooking our court at the facility that holds our main office. Thanks to their continued generosity, the ASFL Challenge will once again be held at the Starland Sportsplex in Hanover on August 3rd. Funds raised by the A Shot For Life Challenge benefit the Dr. Curry Research Laboratory at Massachusetts General Hospital. Coincidentally, Dr. Curry played basketball at Harvard in the 1990s. 

While we have events that are open to players of all ages and skill levels, our ASFL Challenge is unique in that it utilizes the very top talent in Massachusetts exclusively. ASFL is a multi-dimensional charity basketball organization. 

It is a competitive process to be chosen as an A Shot For Life shooter. We not only scout all prospective shooters closely, but we also look for people of great character. We are extremely proud of the 2019 roster as we welcome many new players into the A Shot For Life family. All of the participants involved in the A Shot For Life Challenge have committed to spend a significant amount of time and energy to raise money for brain cancer research. Their excitement and willingness to do so speaks volumes about who they are as people off of the court.

“We’re putting this logo on a lot of incredibly talented players but more importantly we’re putting this logo on a bunch of really great people. Whether it’s in four years or twenty years, everyone will eventually play their last game. Being a part of this organization guarantees that their talent makes a mark on someone’s life. I’m proud that from this point on they will be representing our organization, our alumni, and our mission.”
