Hoops4Hope at Syracuse University

At Syracuse University, H4H helped develop an Event Promotions class with 33 students working all semester to create promotional strategies to support the grassroots organization. Overseen by H4H’s newest supporter, Professor Dr. Bonnie Everhart, theories learned in the classroom are being brought to reality with the help of her eager students, aided by incentives from Carmelo Anthony, one of SU’s most famous hoops alumni, courtesy of the NY Knicks.

Some of the projects presented by the students included a live World Aids Day 2013 telecast concert from South Africa with world famous guests, a Gaming 4 Hope grassroots competitive video game platform, as well as ‘Ball 4 Cuse,’ which would bring back alumni basketball players with Ubuntu for an annual 3 on 3 tournament to support local and global causes for children!

Logan W, a very passionate student of Dr. Everhart’s, said that “…although recognition and praise back home is significant, it does not compare to what it actually provides the kids.”
