The American Cancer Society Hoops For Hope qualifier will be held at Newcomerstown West School gymnasium on Saturday, Jan. 14 between 12-3 p.m.

Hoops For Hope is an affiliate with the ACS and the Cleveland Cavaliers to host a fun throw competition, while raising funds and awareness for an ongoing battle to fight cancer.

Our area will participate in a qualifying round. The winners from each grade bracket will be invited to compete at a regional competition.

All bracket winners from the regional competition will then be invited to the final competition on Feb. 11, at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland for a shoot-off prior to the Cavalier's game. This event is open to all area school districts, students, and adults.
