The University of Winnipeg Women's Basketball program is inviting the basketball community to join the annual SHOOT-A-THON, in support of the Canadian Cancer Society's Shoot for the Cure campaign.

Join the SHOOT-A-THON!

To the benefit of: The Canadian Cancer Society – Shoot for the Cure

Hosted by: the University of Winnipeg Wesmen women’s basketball program


How does a free throw shoot-a-thon work?


  • Participants will shoot 100 free throws and record the number of made shots. Collect sponsors to pledge a monetary amount to donate per made free throw. 
  • For example: An athlete makes 83 out of 100 shots and has a sponsor for $1.50. This sponsor then donates $1.50 x 83 made free throws = $124.50 donation.
  • Sponsors can also choose to donate a set amount, rather than a per-make donation.


How can you participate?


  1. Print off a sponsor sheet, then ask friends and family to sponsor you. If they agree, fill out the sponsor’s name, contact information, and pledge amount. After the shoot-a-thon, you can contact them to collect their donation. See donation instructions below.
  2. Raise $500.00 as a team and gain free admission to the women’s basketball Shoot for the Cure game on Saturday, January 28th at 7:00 pm against the University of the Fraser Valley. Don’t forget to wear pink! 
  3. *Please contact Coach Alyssa Cox by email at if you are participating so that we can make the arrangements for your team’s admission to the game. Your donations should be made before the attending the game.*
