Tangerine Bank Makes A Difference In Canada
We’ll still be cheering for Steve long after he steps off the court. As Program Ambassador for Bright Way Forward, Steve is helping to empower more than 500,000 Canadians, including helping 15,000 kids across Canada develop leadership skills, sportsmanship and a love for the game through Steve Nash Youth Basketball. His contributions, both on and off the court, are why we’re proud to be his partner. #ThanksNash
“Tangerine’s support will help us provide skills, teamwork and leadership coaching to more than 15,000 kids in communities across Canada. By teaming up with Canada Basketball and all of these incredible charities, there's no doubt this initiative will help inspire and make a positive difference in the lives of countless Canadians by giving them a Bright Way Forward.” -Steve Nash
At the event Steve Nash spoke to the kids of the Toronto YMCA about empowerment. He explained that at age 13 he decided he would be a basketball player. He worked hard and focused on his goal. Even though he is not the tallest or fastest he became an NBA All Star and MVP. He also took time to go over skills with the kids at the event.
Then we heard from Canadian Rapper TESTAMENT who was representing Unity Canada
That's not all that took place we also got the opportunity to hear from Unity Canada's founder, who also at a young age decided to take something he loved to do to the next level and as a teen began winning breakdancing competitions all over the world.
You could feel the great energy in the room and they gave the kids the tools to feel empowered in what they love to do.
Thanks to ShesConnected for the invitation to cover this event. Oh and in case you didn't notice in the video above I WAS SITTING BEHIND CANADIAN BASKETBALL GREAT STEVE NASH!!!!!!
