If you’re looking for some fun and a little light competition to fight for a great cause, you should definitely clear your calendar for Saturday, March 22. The Smithton 3 X 3 Basketball tournament is getting players signed up now. The tournament is for boys and girls in third grade through high school.

They've got over 30 teams signed up now.  If you'd still like to get signed up, you have until March 19. Registration can be done online, by mail, or in person at the Celebration Center, located at 1701 West 32nd St. Proceeds from this tournament go to the Imagine No Malaria project.

They're looking for volunteers to help out at the event, to make the whole day go smoothly for all the kids involved and their families.

I got to talk with one of the organizers of the event, John Frazee, about how the event got started and how you can join in to help raise money to end Malaria.

If you’d like to get the kids involved in this event, you have several contact options. You can email smithton3on3@gmail.com, call 660.343.5826 or find them on Facebook. Make sure you get involved today!

Voluntarily yours,

Behka
