MACC Fund, Bucks Continue Outstanding Work
Away from in depth analysis of the action on the court on Saturday, it’d be remiss of us not to mention the outstanding work of the Bucks and the MACC Fund throughout the season following the team’s annual MACC Fund game.
Set up by Jon McGlocklin following his retirement, the MACC Fund (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer) has long been a staple of the community in Wisconsin, and as demonstrated by Saturday’s game marking the 40th annual game in support of the foundation, a frequent charitable partner of the Bucks.
Although the franchise’s work alongside McGlocklin and the MACC Fund extends throughout the season far beyond a single game, Saturday night’s matchup with the Bulls was significant as a portion of ticket funds from the game went to the foundation to help fund further research into childhood cancer.
Aside from any worthwhile takeaways on the court, it would be dishonest to suggest that there was anything more important to come from the game than the funds that could help those who have been cursed by one of our planet’s deadliest diseases. Let’s hope the Bucks and the MACC Fund continue their good work for the next 40 years and beyond too.
