HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) — While you were sleeping, a group of college students made a long journey – basketball in hand.
Members of University of Alabama in Huntsville fraternity Alpha Tau Omega dribbled a basketball from the University of North Alabama in Florence all the way to UAHuntsville.
That’s about 64 miles. They began at 7:00 Saturday night, and ended back on campus about 4:00 Sunday morning.
According to their facebook page, this year is the 23rd annual Basketball Dribble.
The event is meant to raise awareness for their philanthropy, a food festival called Battle of the Buffalo.
All proceeds from the festival go to benefit the Russel Hill Cancer Foundation.
