What’s a Hoop-A-Thon?
“We are shooting to make a difference for kids on and off the court.”

Watch Us on YouTube:
The Strathcona ROTARY Hoop-A-Thon is an annual basketball fundraising event that helps hundreds of kids in East Vancouver. This year we are inviting our supporters to stay safe and shoot hoops at home.  If you don’t have access to a basketball net – you can still play, on your patio, in your back yard, or in your living room.  Get a basket, a bucket or a 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 Facebook Page & Instagram. You’ll have fun and help Rotary help the kids!
All of the funds raised will go to the kids! Including…

-Grade 12 Post Secondary Scholarships
-Strathcona Community Centre Basketball Program
-Youth Leadership Training in East Vancouver
Since 2006 ROTARY has raised over $417,000 - helping kids through education,
teamwork, leadership skills, community involvement and respect for others. 
Rotary has no overhead costs for this project…ALL the money you donate goes to the kids!

Who Do We Help?
All of the funds raised from The Strathcona Rotary Youth Leadership Hoop-A-Thon goes to the kids. Money is awarded in scholarships, the SCC Basketball Program and leadership 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.
On your behalf, Rotary donated to the Strathcona Basketball Program, for equipment. transportation and coaching.
