It's one thing to have a love of basketball but it's another to love the sport so much that you're willing to shoot free-throws for a full day—all for charity.
Local resident Travis Maxey decided that since children should be safe 24 hours a day, he would then shoot free throws for 24 hours at Cincinnati Christian University.
From noon May 27 to noon May 28, Maxey successfully shot free throws for the full 24 hours. Maxey made 8,999 shots of the 10,000 shots he attempted.
"When you get that ball out of the machine over the course of an hour, you've got stuff that builds up on your hands," Maxey said. "So your hands get slick. That's basically what my break-time was."
According to Maxey, he only took 1-2 minute breaks each hour to get a sip of water and wash his hands. Toward the end, he had to take 3-4 minute breaks because he started getting cuts on his fingers and had to change the bandages each hour.
All the funds raised went toward Judi's Place for Kids, the children's advocacy center serving Pike, Floyd, Johnson, Martin, and Magoffin counties in Kentucky.
