Proceeds benefit Grizzlies Foundation
Based on 191 assists, each worth $56.43
Last season, the Memphis Grizzlies and their fans raised more than $25,000 for Hoops for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital program. We’re proud to announce Grizzlies Assists for St. Jude is back! During the games from March 15 through 31, the Memphis Grizzlies are launching the Assists for St. Jude challenge. We are inviting fans to pledge a donation for every assist the Grizzlies record from March 15-31. There are a total of 9 games throughout this span, and the Grizzlies are currently averaging just over 20 assists per game. Your contribution will go towards making sure no family ever receives a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food while at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Mike Conley has kicked off the campaign with a bang, by pledging $25 per assist the team gets for every game from March 15 through March 31. Not to be outdone by Mike, Marc Gasol has also pledged $25 per assist! This is your chance to get involved and contribute to our Hoops for St. Jude program. Please join us in making a significant impact in the lives of children suffering from cancer and their families.
This year we’re excited to offer exclusive incentives to fans who pledge or donate. We are averaging 20 assists per game and project to register 175 assists during the games of this campaign. For example, a $0.60 pledge per assist would roughly be $100 total donation.
Mike and Marc have agreed to a friendly challenge between themselves to see who can raise the most money for St. Jude during Grizzlies Assist Challenge. Fans can participate by clicking on their favorite players page: Mike Conley’s page or Marc Gasol’s page. The loser will get a pie in their face by a patient at St. Jude upon the conclusion of the campaign.
St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Results like these take teamwork. That’s why St. Jude joined forces with the NBA in 2009 to create Hoops for St. Jude — our annual, season-long fundraising and awareness campaign that unites the entire NBA community in supporting the St. Jude mission. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food. That’s why the support of the entire NBA community is so important.
From all of the Memphis Grizzlies players, coaches, and staff, we want to thank everyone who donates and supports this campaign. You are making a significant impact in the lives of children with cancer. If you are unable to make a charitable contribution please share this campaign on Facebook and Twitter.
