If You Haven’t Been to Rucker Park Yet This Summer…

We’ve got the perfect excuse to make the trip up to Harlem’s hallowed grounds. Over on Bounce, they’ve got the skinny on a great event next Monday, August 18th from 12PM – 2PM that they say embodies everything that street basketball is really about.

Some of the top street basketball players are teaming up with Tom Cavanagh (“Scrubs,” “Ed”) and his wife Maureen (from Sports Illustrated) to host the inaugural charity basketball game to raise money for the United Nations Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign to prevent malaria worldwide.

A $10 donation is all it takes to purchase and distribute a long-lasting insecticide-treated bed net to a family in need. Visit www.NothingButNets.net to send a net and save a life.
