Manchester Giants star and ace player, Stefan Gill has become inspired to raise funds for researching prostate cancer. This urge to raise the money came to light after one of his family members was diagnosed with this form of cancer. Using his stardom he wanted to provide local research foundations with large enough donations that they’d be able to do some good.
This required for this ace basketball player to persuade his group of friends on the team to strip off their clothes for a tasteful, almost nude photo shoot. These black and white, artistic photos have already gone viral and are becoming to make major headway in the Great Britain News. Though this story takes a turn towards the odd as the photographer of these photos are Mr. Gill’s sister herself. She took all of the photos which surely is in the realms of odd.
None the less these photos have been able to become popular and raise a large amount of money for prostate cancer. The organization which will be receiving all of the funds currently earned and earned afterwards will be the “Prostate Cancer UK Organization”. These photos are being distributed in the form of a calendar. Those whom wish to purchase it can do so for thirteen Euro’s. They’ll continue to be on sale until November 25th, 2015. They hope to earn a maximum of five hundred thousand Euro’s. This is a far off estimate but for a good cause anything is possible. Go to www.enhance.bigcartel.com.
Halifax, Nova Scotia is receiving their own National Basketball League team. This marks the second time that one of Nova Scotia’s main cities will be getting a professional basketball team. Though this team still might not have a name the Halifax Professional Basketball Club is moving forward with their plans. This is because on Wednesday, September 30th 2015 the HPBC announced that Hugo Lopes will be the head coach for this basketball team.
For those whom might not know Hugo Lopes is from Spain. He has more than fifteen years of professional coaching experience behind his back in the Spanish Professional Basketball Circuit. He coached Liga AC for six seasons, this is considered to be one of the most highly skilled basketball teams around the world. This can very well mean that Halifax’s Basketball Team will become something to be feared in the upcoming seasons.
Lopes stated openly that he is thrilled to be working with Halifax’s new NBL Team & he looks forward to training these new players. This isn’t the first time that Halifax has had a professional basketball team though. The previous team “Halifax Rainmen” were disbanded last year after they had to pay out $70,000 in fines for forfeiting the championship game in April. This lead many people to believe that they were bribed in some manner, none the less paying out the $70,000 had the team file for bankruptcy in a short period of time.
Halifax’s new basketball team is slated to make their first appearance not this season but the next one after it.
