Snapshot: A Shot For Life photo shoot

HANOVER, Mass. -- Yesterday afternoon, ahead of Aug. 2's second annual Shot For Life Challenge, we held a small photo shoot with several of this year's participants, at the University Sports Complex.

Last month, we unveiled the announced participants for this year's event, which has added a girls division and a dunk contest. Last year, 12 shooters from around Massachusetts convened at Hanover's University Sports Complex and shot jumpers for two hours, competing for the honor of being named the state's best shooter, and raising more than $10,000 for brain cancer research. Proceeds for this year's event go to brain cancer research at both Children’s Hospital in Boston and Dr. Curry Research Laboratory at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Joining A Shot For Life founder Mike Slonina in yesterday's shoot were Catholic Memorial's Brandon Twitty, Mansfield's Ryan Boulter, Westford Academy's Samantha Hyslip and Archbishop Williams' Alana Gilmer.
