Each summer myself and a few professional players visit Jamaica to host an annual basketball camp (Hooping for Hope) high in the mountains of St. Anns Jamaica. Here I am afforded the opportunity to donate to over 1000 youths who in most cases have never owned a pair of shoes. Thanks to my shipping sponsor Fed-Ex, I am able to ship thousands of pounds of used and new athletic and educational products to Jamaica to assist in the cause. Last summer we donated the first TV ever to Bethany Primary School and girls at Windsor Girls Home received their first ever haircare and personal hygeine items thanks to teachers who traveled along.
As the season and the school year draws to a close…I am asking all of you for your donation of new and or used uniforms, balls, shoes, basketball goals, reading books, pencils, pens, writing books, computers, TV’s and especially anything to do with soccer and track. As soon as you alert me, I will have the products picked up from your institution. Tournament of Champions, INC is a 501c3 organization.
This trip to Jamaica is open to any and all coaches who wish to attend August 13-16…special discounted accommodations have been made possible at three Ocho Rios locations…its a great getaway for you and your family or you and your coaching staff.
