Charity basketball clinic benefits Florida program affected by hurricane

Share this:

Charyl Stockwell Preparatory Academy Middle School student Molly Prince has organized a charitable basketball clinic to benefit the Marathon (Fla.) Parks and Recreation Department’s Youth Basketball program that was greatly affected by Hurricane Irma. The student-led clinic is for boys and girls in grades 1-6 and takes place 2:30-5:30 p.m. Saturday, March 10, at Scranton Middle School, 8415 Maltby Road, Brighton.

Prince is an avid basketball player. She grew up in Marathon, Fla., (before moving to Michigan in 2014) and accredits her love and passion for the game to her participation in the Marathon Youth program. Now, she feels passionate about helping support the program in its time of need.

“The reason I created the Bounce Back Clinic is for kids to help other kids in need; and for small communities to help lift each other up,” Prince said. “I feel like what ultimately brings us together is taking the chance to serve people besides ourselves, so that we may begin to feel more connected to their lives and their struggles.”

All proceeds go to the Marathon Parks and Recreation Youth Basketball Program. To register, send email to thebouncebackclinic@gmail.com or register on the day of the event. For questions, please send email to thebouncebackclinic@gmail.com.
