On March 19, 2012 both the League of Extraordinary Men and The School of Education co-sponsored an event titled “Shoot 4 Hope.” All proceeds from the event are going to Hoops 4 Hope in South Africa. Hoops 4 Hope is a non-profit charity organization that assists children in dangerous environments to mold them into strong community leaders through sports and social skill-building. The School of Education will be traveling to South Africa in May 2012 to assist in the fundraising efforts for the children. In order to accomplish this goal, there was a five-dollar donation to participate in this Shoot 4 Hope. The winning team was awarded individual trophies and gift certificates to Vincenzo’s pizzeria, while the runners-up sported medals for their efforts in the tournament. In addition to the many athletes that participated, many non-athletic students came to show their support for their friends and to help raise money. It was a night full of sports, socializing, and fun!
