    The Balling for the Cure Basketball Tournament in the memory of Donovan Gayle has announced that it will return for a fifth year on August 24-25, 2018 at the University of Winnipeg Duckworth Centre. Since its start in 2014, the event has raised over $20,000 to benefit CancerCare Manitoba and to fund the Donovan Gayle Scholarships that are now presented as part of the Basketball Manitoba Awards.  The 2018 event will feature 2 senior men's divisions and will add an 18+ female division for the first time.



    The venue is being graciously donated by the University of Winnipeg and all MABO referees will be volunteering their time to work the games.  Basketball Manitoba is able to insure all participants for the weekend and aided with promotional and operations support.
