IMPD And IFD To Play In Charity Basketball Game At UIndy
INDIANAPOLIS — First responders will be facing off in a basketball game.
It’s not your normal basketball game. Hoops and Heroes is a friendly competition for a good cause.
The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department and the Indianapolis Fire Department will compete to see which team is better at basketball.
The first Hoops and Heroes was organized in honor of Kimberlee Carmack, an Indianapolis police officer who lost her life at the hands of her ex-husband after years of physical and sexual violence in April 2014.
The game raises money for the Julian Center and victims of domestic violence.
A free Family Fun Fest at 1 p.m. will come before the game at UIndy’s Nicoson Hall on Saturday. Tip-off is set for 2:15 p.m.
