St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases. Results like ours take teamwork. That’s why St. Jude joined forces with the NBA in 2009 to create Hoops for St. Jude- our annual, season-long campaign that unites the entire NBA Community in supporting the St. Jude mission. During Hoops for St. Jude Week, NBA teams, players and coaches create unique ways to build awareness and raise money for St. Jude, while showing fans how it pays to give back.
Some of the NBA’s biggest stars are teaming up with St. Jude as Hoops for St. Jude ambassadors, including Kevin Love (Cleveland Cavaliers), David Lee (Golden State Warriors), and Coaches Rick Carlisle (Dallas Mavericks), Monty Williams (New Orleans Pelicans) and George Karl (Sacramento Kings).
