The 6th Annual Hoop For Hope Basketball Tournament is back to raise awareness for Childhood Cancer. The tournament will include 3-on-3 games, food trucks, dope giveaways, a halftime show, a Hip Hop cypher and so much more.
The Hoop For All Foundation is a non-profit organization that was founded to promote the awareness of health issues in different communities, in addition to supporting charities in their fundraising efforts and increasing activity involvement in various communities.
In 2012, Howard University Alumni Ayokunle Amoo and Kiera “KB” Thomas, founded the Hoop For Hope basketball tournament. The event has educated many people on the various types of cancer and has also been able to raise money to support research and individual patients affected by cancer.
“Our goal is to change the community by impacting lives. Cancer affects everyone in one form or the other. But together we believe that we can win the fight against cancer through education, awareness, and fundraising.” -Ayokunle Amoo (Co-Founder of hoop for all)
This year, Hoop For Hope’s partners and sponsors include businesses such as: Under Armour, Gatorade, the American Cancer Society, Red Bull, and Howard University Hospital, just to name a few.
The tournament will take place on September 23rd, 2017 at Banneker Park (2500 Georgia Ave. NW) in Washington, DC.
