Please join us this Saturday, October 13th, 2012 from 10am to 1pm for the Hoop Springs Eternal YMCA World Challenge!

All of the branches of YMCA Calgary will set up basketball hoops and will encourage participants to shoot a basketball and contribute to the goal of the largest number people shooting basketballs in one day. There will be draw prizes for anyone willing to take a shot!

YMCA Calgary is helping the World Alliance connect Y’s across the globe in reaching their goal of 5 million people participating in the same event on the same day.  This worldwide event will also be an attempt to set a Guinness world record!

Why basketball? It’s a YMCA invention, after all, and the reason for the World Challenge’s theme: 2012 Hoop Springs Eternal. As Canadians, we can show our support and national pride for the sport created by fellow Canadian James Naismith. 

 Shoot a hoop and make it count!
