24-Hour Basketball Fundraiser Completed In Hanover

HANOVER (CBS) -- A marathon basketball fundraiser continued in Hanover on Sunday morning. The event, called A Shot For Life, went for 24 hours straight.

Players from around the country played around the clock. They were raising money for cancer research, treatment, and support.

Jaden Woodard-Teneus from Randolph was there to participate.

"I have a lot of family members and friends who have been impacted by cancer, it's a big thing in my family which is kind of hard for me. But being able to be here for 24 hours to fight the fight and find a cure for them is always why I'm here," he explained.

The money raised this weekend will go to Massachusetts General Hospital's cancer center.
