The BEAST Foundation in Cheyenne will be hosting the Team Eli 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament on Saturday to raise funds to help the family of a Cheyenne teen battling cancer.

Eli is a 14 years old student at Central High School in Cheyenne. He was recently diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare type of cancer that occurs in bones or in the soft tissue around the bones.

Eli is currently undergoing rigorous chemotherapy and radiation treatments at Children’s Hospital in Aurora, CO. Proceeds from this tournament will go to Eli and his family to cover the costs of traveling to and from treatment, medical bills, and other unforeseen expenses.

The tournament is Saturday, October 26 from 4:00 PM until 9:00 PM at the BEAST Foundation at 2900 Sunflower Road in Cheyenne (map).

The cost is $50 per team. It is a non-competitive tourney with multiple age brackets and Co-Ed teams are welcome. Sign your team up at www.beastfoundation.org

If you don't want to play you can still help and cheer on the players. There will be a silent auction, 50/50 raffles, concessions, and much more.
