24 Hours Nothing But Net is a 24 hours free throw shooting marathon created by Debbie Antonelli, who was inspired by her son Frankie and his love of competition.

Debbie Antonelli began her quest five years ago to raise awareness for Special Olympics. Inspired by her middle son Frankie, a Special Olympic athlete and his teammates from over the years – Debbie envisioned the challenge of shooting 100 free throws every hour for 24 hours.

Since 2019, Debbie has raised over $500,000 for Special Olympics programs!

Beginning at noon on Saturday, May 13, Debbie will make 100 free throws at the top of each hour for 24 hours. At the conclusion of 24 hours, Debbie will have scored 2,400 free throws for Special Olympics!

The entire event will be from the “Team Antonelli Home Court” and live on YouTube and Facebook. Join the fun by subscribing to the live stream on YouTube as well as Liking and Sharing on Facebook.
