McLouth United Methodist Church will have the Imagine No Malaria Basketball Shoutout during Patriots Day Parade festivities Saturday in McLouth.
Participants can shoot three baskets for $1 to try to win one of the prizes that will be awarded Saturday afternoon.
The effort helps to fight malaria, which claims the lives of more than 655,000 people, mostly pregnant women and children, each year in sub-Saharan Africa.
