ar to be so healthy and fit. This is precisely why we are here," said F. Roosevelt (Rosey) Gilliam, M.D., F.A.C.P., F.A.C.C., a Close the Gap steering committee member. "Heart disease can affect the young and the old, and it causes more deaths in Americans of both genders and across all racial and ethnic groups than any other disease. In Wisconsin, it claims more than 10,000 lives each year.[2] However, if individuals can learn their risk factors and the symptoms of heart disease, they can become proactive in controlling their heart health. This is especially important for women, black Americans and Latino Americans who often experience disparities in cardiovascular care."

The Invitational will feature some of the nation's premier high school basketball programs, including Menomonee Falls (Menomonee Falls, WI), Lake Central (St. John, IL), Abraham Lincoln (Brooklyn, NY), St. Frances Academy (Baltimore, MD), Patterson (Baltimore, MD), Roman Catholic (Philadelphia, PA), Price (Los Angeles, CA), Marquette (Milwaukee, WI), Lone Peak (Highland, UT), and Melrose (Memphis, TN).
