The Hannibal Regional Hospital Foundation is teaming up with Hannibal-LaGrange University for Hoops for a Hope Challenge.

The event will be held on Thursday, February 6 at 5:30 pm inside the Mabee Sports Complex. Both the Women’s and Men’s teams will play Missouri Baptist University.

Proceeds will be used to raise awareness for all forms of cancer and to benefit community members fighting cancer at the James E. Cary Cancer Center. Proceeds from the event will benefit the 'Believe Campaign' which is raising funds to purchase new state of the art technologies for the James E. Cary Cancer Center.

Both teams will be selling pink Hoops for Hope t-shirts as well as Power of Pink bracelets this month. T-shirts are available in adult sizes small through triple extra-large and are $15 a piece. Shirts can be purchased from men's and women's basketball players until January 23. Orders can also be placed through Coach Kelly Quigle by phone at 573-629-3212 or email kelly.quigle@hlg.edu.
