Upper Arlington Men's Basketball is excited to participate in OHSAA's Foundation Service Week initiative and will raise money to "SINK" ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), more commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease. UA hosted defending D1 State Champs Archbishop Moeller for a "Foundation" game on Fri., Nov. 23, donating all ticket and concession proceeds from this exhibition game to ALS!

We are dedicating our 2018-19 season to SINK ALS. The disease hits especially close to home, as the father of one of our Varsity cheerleaders is living with ALS. UA will donate funds to the local ALS Association, the ALS Research Fund at OSU and the Stephen Gross ALS Fund. 

THANK YOU to these generous business partners who are helping us SINK ALS: UA Optimist Club, Wright-Patt Credit Union, Riverside Eye Center, Powers Trucking Inc., Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, BSN Sports, Donatos Pizza, Geiser, Bowman & McLafferty LLC, Terry Windler Design, Orthopedic ONE and local author Mark Janacek who is donating proceeds from his book, "The Strike Zone," to ALS!
