The "Hoops for Hope" sixth-grade boys basketball tournament was held March 28 to 30 at Central Cambria in Ebensburg. This was a benefit tournament for the Friends of John Stiffler. Stiffler is receiving medical treatments for a rare nerve disorder. In an effort to make Stiffler more comfortable appearing at the event, many of the players and fans shaved their heads.
