This first time game in Walnut Creek, Ca was a fundraiser for LEAP a program for undeserved, at-risk youth. LEAP is a non-profit program run by the sports psychology department of JFK University. It was a great Sunday event in sunny California. Adonis Foyle, former Golden State Warrior was the guest coach for the LEAP team. His high paced offense kept the game close. If Stephan Curry could have made it the results might have been different.
Since 1991, the Life Enhancement for Athletic Participation (LEAP) program has worked with hundreds of at-risk youth in the SF Bay Area. Through summer sport camps and workshops, including a Challenge Camp at Orin Allen Youth Rehabilitation Facility in Byron, Calif., youth learn mental skills (like goal setting, emotional regulation, and team building) that are transferable to their everyday lives. These skills, and the whole learning experience, help jump start alternative futures for the kids involved.
Please consider making a charitable donation to LEAP and help us continue impacting the lives of at-risk youth.
Every little bit counts. Contributions made here will support LEAP directly, as will proceeds made from the Harlem Wizards event.
