EASTON, Pa. -
The Lafayette men's basketball coaching staff will be hosting a charity three on three basketball tournament on April 13, in an effort to raise money for The Dystonia Medical Research Foundation (DMRF) and The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
The tournament will be set up in round robin format guaranteeing each team a minimum of three games. The tournament will begin at 1 p.m. and will last until approximately 7 p.m. Games will be played at Lafayette College in Kamine Gymnasium and the Allan P. Kirby Sports Center. Cost to participate is $40 per team. Teams are able to have up to four participants per team. There will be various brackets, ranging from competitive and recreational.
All of the day's proceeds will benefit DMRF and JDRF. Founded in 1976, DMRF is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to serving all people with dystonia and their families. Sine its inception, the foundation has grown from a small family-based foundation into a dynamic membership-driven organization led by a Board of Directors and network of volunteers with personal connections to dystonia.
JDRF is the leading charitable funder and advocate of type 1 (juvenile) diabetes research worldwide. The mission of JDRF is to find a cure of diabetes and its complications through the support of research. Type 1 diabetes is a disease which strikes children suddenly and requires multiple injections of insulin daily.
