Three Nonprofits.
One Challenge.

Are you ready to #TAKEYOURBESTSHOT?

What is the
#TakeYourBestShot Challenge?

To celebrate March Madness and raise important funds to support nonprofits in the Triangle, three local nonprofits – the Emily K Center, the SECU Family House, and the Velle Cares Foundation –  are participating in and promoting the Take Your Best Shot challenge, sponsored by the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin. Each nonprofit is encouraging their supporters and the broader community to support their organization while “competing” against the other nonprofits to raise money and awareness for our work in the community.

We encourage everyone to participate in this fun challenge by filming your best trick basketball shot (or any other kind of “shot”), posting it on social media using #TakeYourBestShot, and making a gift to the organization of your choice. One lucky participant who uses #TakeYourBestShot will be randomly selected to win a basketball signed by Coach K!
