Over the 2-day span, 70 teams and over 260 players competed in over 150 total games of basketball. Through registrations and donations, $20,000 dollars were raised for Epilepsy Research and the FACES Foundation.
Elevate 4 Epilepsy was highlighted by guest speaker Doug Worthington, former OSU and NFL football player, who spoke on the importance of athletics.
