Charity basketball game to benefit local family

A basketball game Saturday between Lancer student-athletes and Windsor police will raise money for a local family struggling with cancer.

A group of students from the Odette School of Business—Seun Adekoya, Antoine Chandler, Taijon Rudder and Alaa Shaheen—has set a goal of $10,000 to support the Ryall family.

Parents Francis and Amanda Ryall have both been diagnosed with cancer and are caring for four children under 10 years old.

“We set out to work for a cause that is dear to our hearts,” says Shaheen. “Currently, the Ryalls are unable to work due to their illness. Moreover, their disability benefits expire this month, so they need our help and the support of the community more than ever.”

The game will tip-off in the St. Denis Centre fieldhouse at 7:30 p.m. March 22. Admission is $5. For tickets or more information about how to help the Ryall family, phone Shaheen at 519-200-2522.
