Third Man Up is a newly formed not for profit raising money for children in need through social and sporting initiatives. Their first event was a charity basketball tournament held on Easter Monday 2017, and Helping Hoops was chosen as the beneficiary.
19 teams and 150 players took part in the tournament at Sportlink in Vermont South and combined to raise over $2,500 for Helping Hoops through entry fees, raffles and donations. Given there was an open competition, we decided to enter in our own team to represent which comprised of participants and coaches from our Helping Hoops Future programs.

A massive thanks to Third Man Up and their organising committee for choosing Helping Hoops as an organisation worthy of their efforts. Also thanks to all the players, referees and donors who came together to make the event a huge success and a great way to spend Easter Monday. We also want to acknowledge our kids and coaches from Helping Hoops Future who represented Helping Hoops extremely well and made the day a great spectacle.
