St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases. Results like theirs take teamwork. That’s why St. Jude joined forces with the NBA in 2009 to create Hoops for St. Jude- an annual, season-long campaign that unites the entire NBA Community in supporting the St. Jude mission. During Hoops for St. Jude Week, NBA teams, players and coaches create unique ways to build awareness and raise money for St. Jude, while showing fans how it pays to give back.
Dallas Mavericks Head Coach Rick Carlisle is the coaches representative as a Hoops for St. Jude ambassador, while the rest of the coaches in the league will show their support by wearing pins on their suits.
