Do you want to help generate social and economic value in urban zones? Do you want to help people that are affected by poverty? If your answer to these questions is yes, then Hoops High Road is for you! Hoops High Road tries to help the community by breaking down disadvantages some people have. Our vision is to create focal points in communities that provide safe and healthy outlets for local youth. To do this, Hoops High Roads aims to restore basketball tradition in Philadelphia by creating basketball courts and a mentor program.
Today Athletes C.A.R.E. is starting our “All-or-Nothing” campaign. Our goal is to raise $3,000 to help benefit disadvantaged children in Philly. If the goal is met 100% of the donations will go to Hoops High Road. If we do not meet our goal of $3,000, we will return all of the money to the original donors. Please donate to help us reach our goal of breaking down barriers through basketball!
