Members of the Go1 Team are passionate about helping the community, and one of the ways we do this is by participating in events to help raise money for organisations doing amazing things! We are excited to announce that this year we will have two team members participating in this years Helping Hoops 24 hour Charity Shootout!
Scott Cooper and Rachel Farac of the Go1 San Francisco office will both be shooting as many free throws as they can in 15 minutes to raise money for Helping Hoops. The shootout takes place on June 25th and 26th and is based in Melbourne, Australia with participants from all over the world taking part in the event on their local basketball court as Scott and Rachel will be doing.
Helping Hoops is a Melbourne charity running free weekly basketball programs for over 1,000 disadvantaged and disabled children every year. The programs aren't just basketball related, they also focus on building self-esteem, aiding social cohesion, discipline and leadership skills. Helping Hoops provides a place of safety and stability where these kids can prove to themselves and the world that they are not limited by what society expects of them. They are not expected to develop the next LeBron James or Kevin Durant, but we do hope to develop these kids into best people they can be.
The Go1 team will be raising money that will go towards supporting Helping Hoops in running their programs across Melbourne for the twelve months.
