TUSCALOOSA, Ala. The University of Alabama women’s basketball team participated in the Shoot for Life Challenge Friday evening in Coleman Coliseum. Members of the team cheered for the competitors as they tried to sink as many 3-pointers as possible to help raise money for cancer patients.
Shoot for Life is an organization that works with the Montgomery Cancer Wellness Foundation to help raise money for patients that are under-insured or uninsured and fighting Cancer. The money raised at The University of Alabama will go to former UA student and linebacker Victor Ellis, who is struggling with a rare form of kidney cancer.
The University of Alabama and Auburn University have teamed up to go head-to-head in a battle to see who can raise the most money. Teams of 3-4 will compete to see what team can shoot the most 3-point shots in a given amount of time.
Finalists will compete in December against Auburn finalists in Tuscaloosa. Friday marked the first challenge of the fundraiser. Competitors ranged from team managers to UA students and/or Faculty/Staff.
