The Sean A. Collier Memorial Fund presents the 6th Annual Boston Strong Basketball Invitational.  This 2 day event will take place on August 3-4, 2019 at the MIT Rockwell Cage Gym.   Police teams from Boston and surrounding communities come together to honor MIT Police Officer Sean A. Collier and Boston Police Officer Dennis J. Simmonds.     

The spirit of the tournament is about bringing kids and police together to remember two individuals who sacrificed their life to protect this great city.  Kids  13U teams are matched up with volunteer troopers & police officers.  Kids  will compete  and  have  lunch with their new coaches. This connection encourages dialogue and builds trust between our community’s youths and law enforcement officers.  

This event is free for everyone and will have police and fire department vehicles on display for kids to see and touch, police K-9 demo, and (weather permitting), cornhole, and other outdoor activites. Come support your favorite police team or cheer on the kids.    

All donations go to The Officer Sean A. Collier Memorial Fund, a nonprofit 501(c)3 tax exempt organization.
