The Group's Purpose

“We are shooting to make a difference for kids on and off the court!”

The FOUR Vancouver ROTARY Clubs and Strathcona Community Centre are shooting for a goal of $35,000 for this year’s Hoop-A-Thon. (ROTARY: $25,000; Strathcona Kids: $10,000) The Hoop-A-Thon helps hundreds of kids in East Vancouver, one of Canada’s poorest neighbourhoods. The money raised will go to scholarships, Rotary Youth Leadership Training (RYLA) and the SCC Basketball Program. We will also support Girls Who LEAP: (Lead to Empower & Act with Purpose) - for leadership and mentorship opportunities in East Vancouver.

Since 2006, ROTARY has raised over $315,000 for kids in Strathcona. The program promotes teamwork, leadership skills, community involvement, education and respect for others. 

Last year we awarded $15,000 in scholarships to students for post-secondary education. Each recipient was a top student with a commitment to community service, volunteering and had a verified need for financial support.

On April 27, 2019 over 50 inner city youths representing hundreds of teammates, will shoot "free throws" to raise money together with Rotarians, alumni players and VIPs.
