PHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten (June 29, 2015) – I AM SXM Foundation made a donation to Island Hoops “GLOBALL” for both the U20 and U16 excursions. The U20 Selection will travel to Pennsylvania on July 11 for the four-day intensive basketball exposure camp. The U16 selection is scheduled to depart July 31.
I AM SXM, aka “Bush-T” is proud to support this grassroots initiative that provides St. Maarten youngsters with education opportunities and new experiences through travel and the sport of basketball.
Tamara Leonard of I AM SXM says the foundation is extremely proud to be part of furthering the future and broadening the horizons of the country’s youngsters. “We must invest in our own. We must plant the seeds we want to see flourish and blossom in our future.”
“The basketball camps may just be four days, but those days will have a lasting impact on all of the young players. Their experiences will stay with them for a lifetime and they will undoubtedly use them to elevate their future. Hopefully, they will also see the need to share skills learned with their peers on St. Maarten,” says Leonard.
