HISTORY OF THE 3 ON 3 TOURNAMENT
 
In 2003, tragedy struck our small quiet community when local athlete Dru Gimlin was killed in a car accident.  A true athlete and lover of all sports, Dru had always wondered why all kids couldn't participate. He was told that not all kids had the opportunities that were available to him and that many families struggle to make ends meet and so extra curricular activities are often limited for them.  So as tragic and unexpected as his death was; something good had arisen out of sorrow.  
April of that year, Jerry Morris and Kelly Range, two close friends of Dru?s organized a golf tournament to raise money to start a foundation in memory of Dru. They wanted the money to go to sports programs for kids and to help those athletes who struggle financially to play sports so they wouldn?t have the worries about the cost of equipment or the fees involved in playing. So thus, the Dru Gimlin Foundation was formed.  In the spring of 2004, classmates Drew Ferguson, Joel Omlin and Kim Schorno carried on the funding of the foundation by organizing the first 3-on-3 basketball tournament on the streets of Quincy.  Since then it?s become a tradition in the Quincy Valley for a few high school seniors to carry on the fundraising efforts and keep the original dream alive.
