MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

 Sheriff's deputies, firefighters and police officers united under one roof to help fight cancer.

The event was called "Hoops to Heal" and they hit the court at Wooddale High School Saturday afternoon for a few games of basketball to raise money and awareness for the fight against cancer.

"We're just trying to create a platform for sharing information," said event coordinator Frank Allen. "It's hard to defeat it, but if you can prepare for it, then you have a better chance down the line."

The money raised at the event will go to the American Cancer Society.
