Please help Kaylee get to the 2014 UWG

Please help Kaylee get to the 2014 United World Games - Austria



As long as I can remember, my daughter, Kaylee had a basketball in her hand. At our home, we have a hoop in the backyard and she would be outside for hours and hours dribbling, shooting and practicing. Over the years she was blessed with the honor of having some really great coaches, trainers and family members who worked with her to get her to the skill level she is at today. Kaylee is currently a junior at Saint Raphael Academy in Pawtucket, RI. She is an honor student, assists with community service activities involving inner city youth of New Bedford, MA (under the supervision of Marcus Wills, Basketball Money CEO) and plays basketball all year round (involved with various AAU teams, personal training and numerous camps/showcases). Mid-January our family was presented with some really exciting news. Our Kaylee was chosen to participate in the United World Games 2014 on the USA 19U Elite AIST girls' basketball team June 16-25, 2014. This is truly an honor for her not only to represent her family, community, and school, but her country.
