The 10th Annual Hoops From The Heart games are being held on the evening of Wednesday August 8 in support of inner city kids. Do you want to have fun, save lives and help inner city kids?
Could you do anything better?!
Hoops From The Heart is an annual event (now into its 10th year) where the best men’s and women’s basketball players in Manitoba play two games at the University of Winnipeg's Duckworth Centre. In the process, 150 inner city kids are there to watch the games, receive a free meal, get their own Hoops From The Heart T shirt and take a basketball home signed by one of the players. The proceeds of the games have also helped to create a Scholarship specifically for an inner city youth to go to either the University of Manitoba or the University of Winnipeg to play basketball. Watch great basketball and help Winnipeg’s inner city kids. Part of the proceeds also helps heart research at St Boniface Hospital. Help fight heart disease, the #1 cause of death in Manitoba today and show your support for the present and future basketball stars of Manitoba.
Come on out to the University of Winnipeg’s Duckworth Centre on Wednesday, August 8th. It’s all for a great cause!
