Hoops to BEAT Blindness 2013 will be held at Pizza House in Ann Arbor. On those days, Myron Hepner pledges
to watch every single game of the first round of the
NCAA Basketball Tournament. Over a two-day span, this
represents a total of 32 full basketball games! Pizza House
has several television screens throughout the restaurant, perfect for watching several games at once!
In exchange for the contribution of his
time and efforts, donations are requested in support of
research programs at the University of Michigan Kellogg Eye Center
