Join us at the Hall of Fame: Nov. 11, 2011

18 Oct

“A Million Thanks”

Please join Hoops For Heroes at the culmination of our two-year, collective Thank You to Veterans and service men and women on Veterans Day — November 11, 2011 — at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass.

The final 1,000 made free throws are scheduled to begin shortly after 9 a.m., to conclude with No. 1 million soon after 11 a.m.

[If anyone is interested in staying in Springfield the night before, please contact me at, as there are a limited number of rooms in the area on hold.]

The event is open to the public at regular Hall of Fame admission prices: $16.99 for adults; $13.99 for seniors (ages 65 and above); $11.99 for ages 5-15; and free for children 4 and under.

And this great news: Thanks to the generosity of Hall of Fame President John Doleva, we are pleased to announce that half of the day’s Hall proceeds will go to our beneficiary, the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.

So please join us, and bring a friend, and help to share our message of endless gratitude. As always …

Every shot made shall serve as a reminder of the reverence
due those who have honored us with their selfless service to this country.
Every dollar raised shall serve to benefit those who now suffer for that sacrifice. 
To all Veterans, though it will never be enough, this is our solemn thank you.

    I’ve been watching his updates on FB for nearly two years (I joined in after he started up already)…and can honestly say, how proud his family must be for this great accomplishment. Good Job. I’ll donate, but it’ll have to wait till tomorrow to do it. :-).

    Hmmm, Knoxville, TN Thursday am, Hartford, CT Friday am, Inverness, Florida Sat am. Not sure I can make that happen, but my God daughter Diane Morra will be there with her American college friends. Thank You for your enormous effort in showing us all how to extend gratitude and dare to take on something bigger then we think we are capable of.

    What an incredible accomplishment! We wish we could be there to share in the moment, but will be with you in spirit. On behalf of our fathers, who are both veterans, we thank you.
    The gym on Nantucket will be available whenever you need it. Our best wishes to the whole family.
    Mike and Martha
