MADISON -

Bo and Kelly Ryan's Charity Stripe Challenge raised $41,279 for Coaches vs. Cancer Thursday at the Kohl Center.

Over 1,600 students came to the Kohl Center for a chance to shoot a free throw and a half-court shot. 

The Ryans donated $1 per student, $10 for every made free throw and $1000 for every made half-court shot.  Students made 36 half-court shots in the 4-hour event.

“I’m surprised and overwhelmed by the out-pouring from our students,” Bo Ryan said. “It was just unbelievable, and all I can say is thank you."

 “My wife and I did this event because we firmly believe that with enough funding, a cure for cancer will be found. We took this as another opportunity to have our team interact with the students and involve our campus in this event. What a fun time and for a great cause. I figure one of these half-court shots might be the difference in curing cancer.”
