The Peoria All-Stars need your help.
The local basketball team wants a spot in The Basketball Tournament, a national single-elimination tournament with the winner earning $2 million.
This year, the team is playing for one of their own, who was recently paralyzed after a motorcycle accident.
The All-Stars' plan, if they win, is to donate portions of their winnings to their teammate's medical costs and to local organizations and charities that help kids.
Only the top nine teams voted for in each region get into the tournament, and the All-Stars are a few places behind.
If you want to help them out, you can vote here.
