After hosting three successful Kick & Roll Open Gyms through the first three months of the year, George Kiel and the Kiel Colon Cancer Foundation are set to host three more sessions in Houston, Texas.
As an extension of the Kick & Roll Classic 3-on-3 Basketball Event, the Kick & Roll Open Gym sessions – sponsored by the Josh Childress Foundation and supported by NiceKicks.com, Sneaker Summit and others – are free, sneaker-themed monthly pickup basketball gatherings designed to raise awareness for colorectal cancer, encourage a healthy lifestyle and build a rapport within the communities they serve through themed, non-monetary donations. The themed donations go to specific groups and/or entities that they target each month in hopes of bettering the overall state of colon cancer. Although free to the public and participants, only the first 40 people to register are allowed to play in the Open Gym sessions and to play, participants must donate a non-monetary gift to the theme they choose for each particular month. Prize packages are handed out to the Most Valuable Player, the participant who brings out the best shoe and the biggest donor to KCCF’s themed cause.
If you’re in the Houston area, stop by and check out the first of three events in Houston, Texas at Cypress Creek High School (flyer with details below). Also, visit kielcoloncancer.org for more details.
