Reebok employees and their friends and family spent a recent Friday night celebrating the Shooting Touch Sabbatical Program. Shooting Touch Inc. is a non profit organization that uses the sport of basketball to positively impact the lives of children both on and off the court in Boston and abroad.
Started by Reebok employee Justin Kittredge, The Shooting Touch Sabbatical Program, referred to as “The Basketball Peace Corps” grants graduating college students the opportunity to travel the world and use the platform of basketball to help foster education and influence positive social change in third world communities. A true testament to how highly regarded this foundation is, the Board of Directors includes ESPN’s Fran Fraschilla, Kenny Atkinson from the Atlanta Hawks, and Jason Terry from the Boston Celtics.
The night included a silent and a hilarious live auction which was emceed by Boston Favorite Dan Flynn and Hollywood Comedian Lenny Clarke.
