Can you shoot 1,000 free throws to represent the thousands of children orphaned by AIDS every day? How about 2,057 to represent the number of children orphaned during a normal school day? Does your team have what it takes to shoot 6,000 free throws, one for every child orphaned on an average day?

Or how about setting your own personal goal?  Every shot you take will represent a child orphaned by HIV/AIDS.  You determine how many you want to shoot.  There is not a required number of shots you must take in order to participate. And you definitely don't have to make them all.  Just Take your Best Shot!!
