Shoot Down Cancer
...one basket at a time
The American Cancer Society is teaming up with the Milwaukee Bucks and Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin for a one-of-a-kind cancer-fighting experience. The inaugural American Cancer Society Shoot Down Cancer event will be held Sunday, September 18, from 1:00-4:00 p.m. at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
The first-ever Shoot Down Cancer invites the entire Milwaukee community to join together for a unique basketball shooting event that will raise funds for the American Cancer Society. The event is FREE and open to the public. In addition to family-friendly activities and giveaways, all attendees can take a free throw and 3-point shot on the Milwaukee Bucks home court. The first 1,000 fans will also receive a FREE commemorative Shoot Down Cancer T-shirt.
“Cancer is a worthy opponent, and victory over the disease will take teamwork,” said Dave Benson, executive vice president for the American Cancer Society. “We’re excited to join forces with the Milwaukee Bucks and Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin to shoot down cancer, one basket at a time.”
Peter Feigin, president of the Milwaukee Bucks, Porschla Kidd, wife of Milwaukee Bucks head coach Jason Kidd, and Catherine Jacobson, president and chief executive officer of Froedtert Health, are serving as Honorary Chairs for the event. As event sponsors, the Milwaukee Bucks and Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin have also agreed to donate up to $20,000 to the American Cancer Society based on participation and successful shots.
Dollars raised through the Shoot Down Cancer event will support the American Cancer Society’s mission to save more lives from cancer. From research to education, prevention to diagnosis, and treatment to recovery, the American Cancer Society provides support to everyone impacted by cancer, in every community, every day.
Sponsorship opportunities at various levels are still available.
