last year was the first year he genuinely forgot about his anniversary.
“That was really special when I didn’t even realize the anniversary had passed,” said Luke. “It shows how I’m now basically living without thinking about this horrible disease.”
“The event flows perfectly with my aspirations,” continued Luke. “Seeing this event benefit the American Cancer Society and being a sports lover, as well as a former MYBL player, made this a great fit.”
Luke says that the Crestwood administration could not be any more helpful and credits the CHS Key Club for being instrumental in helping with many aspects of the event such as ticket sales, raffle sales and any other places that need to be “filled in”.
“The administration and Key Club at the school is very helpful and supportive.” Said Luke “Every thing we’ve asked of them, they’ve been absolutely phenomenal, we couldn’t do it without them. We have a great relationship with them and hope to continue that going forward.”
Luke says that each year the event has some sort of addition or improvement. In addition to the sixth team, Luke says that they have also implemented new rules and a four point shot in the last minutes of each game to keep teams competitive. Despite his graduation from Crestwood, Luke plans to continue running the program for as long as he is in the area.
“The atmosphere is very cool. It is a family fun event with a competitive,” remarks Luke.
