We are Dylan and Jack, high school students, who have loved and played basketball since we were little. We lost a dear family member to Alzheimer's, and want to bring people together who love basketball and care about helping those with Alzheimer's (and their caregivers). God makes it possible for us to do this for others, and through him we can all help. We've had 4 annual fundraisers for experienced basketball players to raise money for Alzheimer's. We're grateful to our friends at Jet's for their sponsorship in 2021! And, we've been grateful for the Boys and Girls Club of Troy for a great venue in years past. Prime Event DJ, Tim, is awesome, and thanks Hunt Sign for signs used in the past.
At our first annual event, we raised $700 and had tons of fun. In 2019, our second annual event, we raised $1300. In 2020, our third year, we raised $300 through social media. In 2021, we raised more than all prior 3 years combined: $2,449! Pictures from previous events are shown below.
Dylan is now in college, and Jack decided to keep up the tradition and take over in 2022. He made new changes and is developing the fundraiser in all the ways possible.

That's great! Here's what we could use:
10% of people over 65 have Alzheimer's. 32% of people over 85 have Alzheimer's. In total, nearly 6 million people have it in the US. Alzheimer's is expected to increase a lot each year. God's gifts will help us fight this and support those suffering.
