We had a great time volunteering at the MLK Day Basketball Leadership Camp hosted by Brothers Restoring Urban Hope Inc. (BRUH Mentor). Thanks to our donors, we were able to provide lunch for all the volunteers and participants. Also, in appreciation of their service to others, we provided the volunteers with Ball4Good merch. Kids received prizes too! MLK Day 2019 was a great experience! Thank you BRUH Mentor! Thank you donors!

Happy Holidays! At this special time of year, I’d like to thank you for supporting Ball4Good. We’ve had a great first year, and none of it would have been possible without you. I mean, who would have thought that a kid’s school project could turn into this? I sure didn’t.
Thanks to my Ball4Good experience, I wrote a book to inspire kids to change the world and has been receiving public speaking engagements. Once again, thanks a million for believing in me! A big thank you to Ms. Thomas (mentor), Ms. Kelsea Turner (teacher), Houston Graves (2018 Tournament Partner), our volunteers, our celebrity players, my advisors, parents, family, friends and the entire community.
Enjoy your holiday season! Look out for details about the 2018 Ball4Good Tournament!
