Hoops for Hope 2015 Honoree Announced
The 2015 Hoops for Hope Women’s Basketball Tournament (this year with a men’s division) on March 15, at Marist College’s McCann Arena supporting the Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation is honoring Viccie Dennin, a 15-year breast cancer survivor living in Beacon Hills, NY. Mrs. Dennin has been married to her husband, Mike, for 47 years and has four children and seven grandchildren.
Mrs. Dennin is part of a truly athletic basketball family. Not only did she play in high school, but she and Mike helped run the CYO program at St. Mary’s Fishkill for over 25 years. All four of her children played basketball in both the CYO program and in high school at Our Lady of Lourdes, where both daughters played on championship teams. Mrs. Dennin now helps to ferry her grandchildren to CYO basketball!
As a breast cancer survivor, Mrs. Dennin knows adversity. When faced with her breast cancer diagnosis, she armed herself with a constant, strong faith and with the love and support of her family and friends.
Aside from their strong connection to basketball, Mrs. Dennin and her family also have a connection to Miles of Hope. Her daughters and son-in-law have been supporting the Foundation’s various programs over the years, including playing in the Hoops for Hope event, volunteering to referee games and even walking in the Community Walk. This year, family members will be playing in both the Women’s and the new Men’s Divisions for the Tournament.
