Hoops4Hope - NM Legislator Basketball Fundraiser

Fundraiser in support of the UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center’s Patient Care Fund


Since 2000, the New Mexico state legislature has put aside politics to play basketball during the final days of the legislative session. Instead of dividing along party lines, the legislature divides into the House of Representatives and the Senate. In 2004, our lawmakers decided to use the game to help raise money for The University of New Mexico Comprehensive Cancer Center in memory of Representative Ray Ruiz, who sadly died of lung cancer that year. The game has raised more than $346,046 since 2007 for the Patient Care Fund, benefiting New Mexicans fighting cancer.
