2015 RMIT Charity Shootout Comes Up Big

By 16/09/2015News

On September 16, 2015, members of the RMIT Basketball Club, and other students, teamed up with Helping Hoops to run the second RMIT Charity Shootout. The event, which built on the success of the inaugural Shootout in 2014, took over RMIT’s Urban Square in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD. All participants registered to shoot as many free throws as they could in 15 minutes, and raised money for Helping Hoops in the lead up to the event. A combined total of 3,048 free throws were made at a healthy 40%.

The final fundraising tally reached $915.20, which is a great effort and very much appreciated.

The 2015 RMIT Charity Shootout was a great opportunity to solidify our relationship with the basketball club, the university, and a great excuse to meet new friends and supporters in a fun environment. Thanks goes to RMIT Basketball Club President, Eli Chadwick, and the man who started it all in 2014, Samuel Kwong. A special thanks also goes out to all the rebounders and shot counters that made the day go smoothly.

We are already looking forward to the 2016 RMIT Charity Shootout.
