BENEFITING: SHOOTING TOUCH
EVENT DATE: Aug 21, 2016
Shooting Touch is an international nonprofit organization whose mission is to use the power of basketball to educate and empower young people around the world. Founded in 2007, Shooting Touch utilizes a sport-for-social-development model that provides at-risk, underserved youth with access to regular sport programming and education that models healthy living habits. Shooting Touch uses the sport of basketball to achieve three objectives: 1) promote physical activity; 2) support equal access to sport; and 3) empower communities to work together to create social change breaking the cycle of poverty and disease. Shooting Touch currently provides programming in Boston and Rwanda and has served over 11,000 youth in the last nine years. We are running the 2016 Falmouth Road Race and fundraising to continue this programming. Help us help the youth we serve!
