Basketball is a popular activity in Pompano Beach. And the game will be used to help a good cause.

The City of Pompano Beach and Blanche Ely High School are going to duke it out on the court in a Hoops For a Cure Basketball Challenge to raise funds for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

As part of the City’s wellness program, employees from the City’s public works and utilities departments formed a Hoops For Health basketball team that has been playing basketball every week after hours as part of the wellness initiative. They challenged the Blanche Ely High School Varsity Basketball Team, teachers and staff to a basketball competition to raise awareness for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Both teams will be wearing pink for the game.
Pompano Beach Mayor Lamar Fisher will take part in the basketball game for this worthy cause.

The Blanche Ely High School Marching Band, pictured above, teachers and City employees will also be in attendance to cheer on their team and show their support.

Breast cancer is a terrible disease, but if it is detected and treated early, there is a greater possibility that it can cured.  Doctors who specialize in treating cancer recommend that people receive checks for cancer on a regular basis.
