What’s a Hoop-A-Thon?
The Hoop-A-Thon is an annual basketball fundraising event that challenges players to sink as many free throws as possible in one minute.  We gather pledges and donations for Rotarians, Interactors, Rotaractors, and Basketball players who participate.  All money received goes to local charities.

Who Do We Help?
All of the funds from The Rotary Hoop-A-Thon stay in your local community. In 2022 you helped us raise $59,750.  Thank You!
In Vancouver, money is awarded for scholarships, the SCC Basketball Program, and leadership training. 
Scholarships help students with their tuition and other costs for college and university. All of the students who receive Rotary 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.
Jennifer was our first Rotary Scholarship recipient.  She is now a teacher, coach, and Youth Leader in Vancouver. See her story:
Naomi is another Strathcona grad and one of our Rotary scholarship recipients.  Naomi played for Team Canada (U24 Women) helping us get to the World Championships in 2018. Today she is completing her practicum in Victoria as a Dietician and volunteers as a mentor and youth leader.
