What a weekend!

The weekend was incredible!  We're just now starting to hear the stories from around the world from those that participated in Hoops of Hope this past week. We'll post a bunch of them here so check back often. As for our event in Arizona, we had 125 shooters show up and probably 200 volunteers. We had participants range in age from 18 months to 70 years old. In total, our Phoenix location raised $13,200 for the clinic! 

The highlight of our event though was when a family from Burundi came and sang for us. Seriously, probably 30 family members, all refugees from Burundi came to our gym and sang songs in Swahili. It was an amazing day. I'll post some pictures tomorrow.
