Maine’s Longest-Running 3-on-3 Charity Basketball Tourney Goes Virtual
Maine’s Longest-Running 3-on-3 Charity Basketball Tourney Goes Virtual
The C-U Swish-Out Childhood Cancer Challenge has been happening for 27 years. Usually, hundreds of Mainers get together at the giant USM gym in Gorham to play 3-on-3 and raise a ton of money for charity. The Swish-Out Challenge started in 1994, had seven teams, and raised $575. Last year, the tournament had nearly 60 teams and raised $50,000 for the Maine Children’s Cancer Program. Total it all up and the tournament has raised $525,000 for children with cancer and their families. That’s amazing. And these great folks are not going to let the pandemic stop Maine’s longest, continuous-running charity basketball tournament.
