BENEFITING: FULL COURT PEACE
EVENT DATE: Jun 09, 2016
As some of you may know, I have been selected to participate in a Full Court Peace Service Learning Trip to Cuba this June.
Full Court Peace is a nonprofit organization that uses basketball as a unifier in places like Belfast, Northern Ireland; Havana, Cuba; and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. FCP sees a globally connected basketball community that serves all populations regardless of race or socioeconomic status and continues its mission of unifying, strengthening and educating local and global communities through basketball. Since 2009, FCP has been organizing Basketball Ambassador Trips to Havana, Cuba to build grassroots relationships between everyday Cubans and everyday Americans. Youth from High School Clubs and Youth Basketball Program, as well as college and professional players and coaches, travel to Cuba with FCP throughout the year. We will work with local Cubans to refurbish dilapidated basketball courts, and to play together with the Cubans in FCP-sponsored tournaments and leagues. FCP has brought over 150 travelers to Cuba in 5 years. With your help I hope to raise $3000 to support FCP’s next Ambassador trip to Havana in June and further its mission.
Thank you in advance for all of your support and generosity.
