The Strathcona ROTARY Hoop-A-Thon is an annual basketball fundraising event that helps hundreds of kids in East Vancouver. On May 9, 2020 basketball players aged 10 to 18 will be joined by Rotarians, alumni and VIPs who have collected pledges to shoot free throws - earning money for the program.


THIS YEAR’S HOOP-A-THON GOAL IS $65,000… The Vancouver ROTARY Clubs are shooting for $55,000 and The Strathcona Community Centre kids are shooting for $10,000. When we reach our goal…

-$40,000 will be awarded to Grade 12 students for Post Secondary Scholarships
-$15,000 will be given to the Strathcona Community Centre Basketball Program

-$6,000 will go to Youth Leadership & Vocational Training in East Vancouver
-$4,000 will be used to send kids to Rotary Youth Leadership Training (RYLA)


Since 2006 ROTARY has raised over $365,000 - helping kids through education,
teamwork, leadership skills, community involvement and respect for others.

Who Do We Help?
All of the funds raised at The Strathcona ROTARY Youth Leadership Hoop-A-Thon goes to the kids. Money is awarded in scholarships, leadership and job skills training. 


Scholarships help individual students with their tuition and other costs for college and university. All of the students who receive funding have demonstrated their commitment to community service, youth leadership and volunteerism - and have a verified need for financial support due to family and individual circumstances.
