Athletes-to-Athletes hosts charity basketball game for Tracy's Hope

JOHNSON CITY, N.Y. - Students, faculty, and staff are coming together to score a slam dunk for charity.

The Athletes-to-Athletes non-profit organization was founded by four Johnson City students in 2011 with the mission to help athletes and the community in need.

The organization hosted its annual staff basketball game, where teachers from the high school battled the teachers from JC's K through 8 School.

The proceeds from the game were donated to Tracy's Hope, a local non-profit that pays for expenses and utility costs for people with breast cancer.

Johnson City High School Business Teacher, Joe Schieve says the event is a fun way to donate to those in need.

"It started off as a fun event, but it's become semi-competitive game.  Toward the end of each quarter, the teachers start going hard and its exciting for us and we see it as living our glory days again," said Schieve.

In addition to the game, the event also included basket raffles, petable creatures from Animal Adventure, and a Krispy Kreme Donut sale.

Over 1,000 people came out to watch the game and support Tracy's Hope.
