St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases. That’s why St. Jude joined forces with the NBA in 2009 to create Hoops for St. Jude- an annual, season-long campaign that unites the entire NBA Community in supporting the St. Jude mission. A highlight of the partnership is Hoops for St. Jude Week, which will take place March 11-17, in order to raise awareness and support for the hospital’s lifesaving mission. Throughout the week, NBA teams and players shine a light on the work and successes of St. Jude through online, social media and in-game promotions, in addition to hosting local patients in-arena.

2018 Hoops for St. Jude Week Ambassadors:

Mike Conley, Memphis Grizzlies
Marc Gasol, Memphis Grizzlies
Pau Gasol, San Antonio Spurs
Kevin Love, Cleveland Cavaliers
Coach Rick Carlisle, Dallas Mavericks

Through our partnership with the National Basketball Coaches Association, HallPass Media produced this message from it’s President, Rick Carlisle.
