#MakeBoPay returns Thursday

Bo, are you gunning for $50k this year?? - USA TODAY Sports

Can Wisconsin students sink enough shots to outdo last year's $41,279 fundraiser donation by Bo and Kelly Ryan?

Thanks to a highly successful premier event last fall, Wisconsin's campus-wide shooting contest for cancer research returns Thursday afternoon.

Rebranded as the Shooting Down Cancer fundraiser this year, every UW student is invited to the Kohl Center between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. tomorrow to try a free throw and a half court shot to raise money for the American Cancer Society. The goal is to top last year's donation of $41,279.

WHEN:
Thursday, Oct. 17, 3-7 pm
Where:
Kohl Center, Gate A

Head coach Bo Ryan and his wife Kelly deserve a lot of credit for making this happen and offering to foot the bill again. The format will be the same this time around. Every student who attends raises the donation amount by one dollar, with a made free throw worth $10 and a made half-court shot worth $1,000. At the end of the night, the results are tallied and the Ryans cut the check.

Not only does a ton of money gets raised for cancer research, but it has proven to be a great way for the student body to congregate with each other and the basketball team as the season approaches.

Athletes from many other sports stopped by last year to try their luck, including defensive lineman Warren Herring, who put the hurt on Bo's wallet from half court:
