During Hoops for St. Jude Week (March 7-14)  NBA head coaches Jeff Hornacek and Rick Carlisle took the time to visit the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.

Jeff Hornecek

Phoenix Suns coach, Jeff Hornacek, was able to bring some holiday cheer to the kids of St. Jude. During his visit, Coach Hornacek read “Elf on the Shelf,” and got in trouble with the patients for trying to skip some pages!

Rick Carlisle

St. Jude patient Raven’s favorite sport is basketball. Her dream came true when Hoops Ambassador Coach Rick Carlisle and the Dallas Mavericks came to visit St. Jude. Her mom is grateful for everything St. Jude provides for them. “At St. Jude, we’re taken care of, we have everything we need,” she said.
