High School Basketball: A Shot For Life, Inc. Announces Roster for Sixth Annual A Shot for Life Challenge

On Thursday morning, A Shot For Life, Inc. announced the roster for its sixth annual A Shot for Life Challenge. The event, which takes place on August 4th at the Starland Sportsplex in Hanover, 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.”

Funds raised by the A Shot For Life Challenge benefit the Dr. Curry Research Laboratory at Massachusetts General Hospital. It is a competitive process to be chosen as an A Shot for Life shooter. The organization selects not just those deemed to be the best shooters in Massachusetts, but also those that exhibit great character.

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. 

“We’re very excited to welcome in a lot of new faces to the ASFL Family, but I also want to stop and recognize all of the players who have been so loyal to this organization throughout their high school careers. We expect our players to take wearing this logo seriously, and a lot of the familiar names heading off to college on this roster have set an excellent example for our younger players of what it means to be a part of this on and off the floor. 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.” 
- Mike Slonina, CEO and Founder of A Shot For Life, Inc.
