The Hoops For Hannah March Madness Bracket Challenge

Now  here is a fundraiser that is both fun and different. The Hoops For Hannah March Madness bracket challenge combines your love (obsession?) with the NCAA Basketball tournament with supporting a very worthy cause.

Hoops for Hannah is held in honor of Hannah Taylor, an avid basketball fan, who lost her life to brain cancer in 2012 at age 32. Her family started Hoops For Hannah to honor her life, reflect her love of college basketball and support research for brain cancer. They put up a $1,000 prize to the highest scorer in the Hoops For Hannah NCAA basketball bracket.

Here’s how you play:
