The Big 3-Point Challenge

Duke Children’s Hospital & Health Center is grateful to have been selected by Coach Mike Krzyzewski as the Duke charitable designee for the BlueCross BlueShield of North Carolina (BCBSNC) Big 3-Point Challenge, a three point contest between the Duke, NC State and UNC men’s basketball teams.

The team that scores the most three-point shots for the 2013-2014 regular season will win $10,000 for their selected charity from BCBSNC. Second place will win $7,500, and third place will receive $5,000.

Fans can participate, too! You will help Duke earn points by simply texting the word “Duke” to 72579. The school with the most texts will receive an additional check for $10,000 at the end of the competition.  You can text once a day, so set a daily reminder! 

Share news about the Big 3-Point Challenge with your friends on Facebook, Twitter and email.

The contest ends March 1. You can check to see how we’re doing on the official campaign website.


Thank you Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina for this amazing $20, 000 donation from the 2013 Big 3 Point Challenge. Thank you to Coach K for choosing us as a beneficiary, and thanks to the men's Duke basketball team for hitting all those 3s!
