EAST ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) - -

First responders from Washington Park and East St. Louis hit the court for a good cause Friday night.

Washington Park and East St. Louis police played in a basketball game against East St. Louis firefighters. The proceeds from the game went towards programs at the Jackie Joyner-Kersee Center.

“It feels good because there’s a lot of kids who want to be out there and be a part of the programs, but they don’t have the funds to do it,” said programs coordinator Simone Springfield.

The game ended in a tie.
