Hoops of Hope raises money for HIV in Africa

Posted: Updated:

People from all over the Tri-Cities came out to Carmichael Middle School to hoop it up for a good cause.

  A recent graduate from Richland High School hosted an event today called 'Hoops of Hope' today, which is a free-throw shoot-a-thon to a raise money for HIV care in Africa.

"I think it's really important that younger people are getting involved with stuff like this because you can make a difference any time no matter how old you are," Gina Ojeda said.

 Today's fundraiser brought in $5,000 that will go directly to Africa.
