Rimrock teen organizes hoops tournament to help drug prevention
The Daily Courier

Caleb Krebbs, a 17-year old Rimrock High School student, has a vision to help reduce substance abuse.

"I have seen the damage that drug abuse causes for the person and for families and I want to do something about it," he said.

Krebbs launched a 3-on-3 basketball tournament called "Shoot for Drug Awareness" that is set for Sept. 20-21 in Cottonwood. Youth and adults are invited. Proceeds from the event will go toward MATFORCE's various drug prevention programs.

"We admire Caleb and are so grateful for his fund-raising efforts," Merilee Fowler, MATFORCE executive director said. "Many in our community may not realize that MATFORCE is a nonprofit organization, relying solely on grants and donations to fund our many drug prevention projects."

The Shoot for Drug Awareness Tournament will be held at Cottonwood Middle School on Sept. 20-21. Start times are 5 p.m. on Friday and 9 a.m. on Saturday.

Sign up for either the 6th to 8th grade division or for the high school to adult division. Participants can register a team of four players for a total of $40. Those who pre-register by Sept. 10 will also receive a participant T-shirt.

Register by emailing matforce@cableone.net or by calling 928-708-0100.
