North Philly Ballers

We started a girls basketball team at our school, Gen. George G. Meade School (18th & Oxford) this year.  At our first practice, half the girl we're in boots or old sneakers.  They were sliding all over the floor.  I want them to feel like the athletes they are and give them the proper equipment.  The money raised with this gofundme will be spent on basketball sneakers for each of the 15-20 girls we anticipate signing up for the team by the end of next week.

Practices have already begun and we have games starting soon so there is a sense of urgency to get this project funded so the girls will get the most out of their shoes.  I will post receipts to the page to show exactly where the money was spent.  

Thank you for your support!

We had our first games today! The team met at school and we took the subway then trolley together to University of the Sciences. They were scared/nervous at first, but once they started to make a few baskets the jitters left and it was nothing but fun. It was so rewarding for me to see the smiles on everyone’s faces. Here’s a quick peek at our day. Thanks so much for helping make this possible. We have our next game this Monday, wish us luck! Go Mustangs!

A girl on the team was absent on Tuesday so we went back on Friday and got her a pair of sneakers for the season. Thanks everyone for your support!! Next up is shorts so they can play in something other than their school pants.

We went shopping today!! The pictures and videos don't do justice in showing how excited they were. After today, a dozen girls were walking around North Philly but they were on top of the world, feeling as confident as they deserve to and always should. Without everyones support, this is only a dream, but you've helped make it a reality. I can't thank everyone enough.
