About the event
Layups 4 Life (www.layups4life.org) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that raises vital funds for cancer research and clinical trails. Founded by cancer survivor, Dan Exter, Layups 4 Life has multiple events throughout New Jersey in the health, fitness and social space to raise money for their cause. In just three years of operations, Layups 4 Life has raised over $50,000 and with those funds they have made contributions to various research departments, clinical trials and doctor's personal research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
One of Layups 4 Life's largest and most popular fundraiser is their annual 3v3 charity basketball tournament. This year's tournament is open to all ages and skill-set for both kids and adults, starting at age 13. Our 2018 tournament will be taking place on Saturday April 28th, at the Parsippany PAL Youth Center located at 33 Baldwin Rd, in Parsippany New Jersey.

Layups 4 Life was created by Dan Exter, a former cancer patient, treated at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Dan was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (A.L.L.) in the summer of 2013 at the age of 27. He received a treatment plan consisting of full body radiation, chemotherapy and a T-Cell depleted Stem Cell transplant. Dan’s younger and only brother, Jason, beat the 25% chance odds and tested as a perfect match and became Dan’s donor.
While recovering and laying in his hospital bed, Dan made a promise to himself. That promise was that if he was fortunate enough to make a full recovery that he would be an advocate in the fight against cancer. It was during his recovery that Dan wrote on a piece of paper the idea of creating Layups 4 Life.
Layups 4 Life is founded on the principles of making a difference in the fight against cancer. It is L4L’s mission to help raise vital funds for cancer research and clinical trials at MSKCC. The transplant procedure that Dan received at Memorial Sloan Kettering began as a clinical trial and due to its success was able to be implemented as Dan’s treatment plan and inevitably saved his life.
