Hoop-A-Thon 2020

The 2020 Strathcona ROTARY Youth Leadership Hoop-A-Thon Raised $52,000+
Thanks to all who donated this year during unusually difficult economic times. 
Because of the generosity of Rotarians, friends, family, our Corporate Donors, The HoopLaw Tournament and the Vancouver Basketball Foundation we were able to exceed last year’s receipts!
ALL of the money raised will go towards helping kids in East Vancouver:
Scholarships: $35,000
Strathcona Basketball Program: $8,190
Rotary Youth Leadership Training (RYLA): $4,000
Girls who LEAP: (Lead, Empower, Act with Purpose): $5,000
Since 2007 the ROTARY Hoop-A-Thon Project has raised over $415,000 supporting our Youth Leadership initiatives in Vancouver. 
Again, thank you for helping us help the kids!

Welcome to The 2020 Strathcona ROTARY Youth Leadership HOOP-A-THON!

Presented by Vancouver Rotary Clubs & Rotaractors:

What is ROTARY?


The Coronavirus WILL NOT STOP Vancouver ROTARY Clubs from Helping the Kids!


The Coronavirus has interrupted the way we live, however it will not stop Vancouver ROTARY Clubs from helping the kids. This year’s Hoop-A-Thon fundraiser will go ahead, but with one change. The Strathcona Community Centre is closed so no teams will be shooting hoops this year.


Thanks to the generosity of Rotarians, a Rotary District Grant, a contribution by the Hoop-Law Tournament and corporate donations - we have already raised over $38,000. This money will be awarded for Scholarships, Rotary Youth Leadership Training and the Strathcona Basketball Program. In the past, we have received hundreds of donations from our friends, but this year is different. Many families have limited resources, so we have scaled back our goals and fundraising. If you can help, thank you. If not we understand.

Have Your Own, At Home Hoop-A-Thon….


To show your support, join us on Facebook!


Shoot hoops at home. If you have a basketball net, great. If not – you can still play, on your patio, in your back yard, or in your living room. Get a basket, a bucket or garbage can: that’s your target basket. Then use crunched up paper, tennis balls, rolled-up socks – whatever you can throw - and see how many baskets you can sink for the kids.


Take a video and share it on our Facebook Page. You’ll have fun and help Rotary help the kids!


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

The Hoop-Law Tournament is a basketball tournament organized by downtown lawyers and UBC Law students that pits firm against firm, barristers versus solicitors.  More than 250 lawyers from 25 law firms participate with dozens of law students. Since 1995 Hoop-Law has raised over $1 million for children in need who are living in our community.   For more:

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.
