Participants in the Hoops for Hope tournament say it’s fun, but admit it can be grueling.

“Early morning hours, like 4 a.m. you kind of say ‘What am I doing?’” one participant told WBZ NewsRadio 1030.

The folks at Hoops for Hope raise money for a number of worldwide initiatives. This particular tournament is focused on helping a hospital in Cambodia.
