March Madness is a charity and community-sponsored basketball tournament in which any Lakota student (grades 2-6) can participate to represent his or her school and help raise money for local causes.
The tournament typically tips off in late March and runs for approximately two weeks. The entire community is invited to come out and enjoy the games and help support the benefiting charities.
On average, more than 1,000 students - on nearly 150 different teams - participate in the tournament each year, raising over $14,000 for local non-profits.
"The tournament is about community-building and philanthropy. What students learn goes far beyond how to dribble and shoot a basketball. They learn how to support one another, as both a teammate and a cheerleader in the stands." Mike Goldman, Lakota March Madness Chairman & Co-Founder
