Dunk & Beyond (Coming Soon!)
Play It Forward. Gives all kids the lifelong benefits of sport and physical activity by providing new equipment, apparel and footwear to those most in need.
In the face of the crisis that COVID-19 presents, the impact on access to youth sports and physical activity is unprecedented. Children from high-poverty communities who often rely on school physical education and after-school programming for active play, social interaction, and positive experiences are now facing some of the most challenging implications of this crisis in our society.
For our most vulnerable children, this crisis is not just an inconvenience, it can be traumatic.
Right now, sports and play look different, but that’s OK. This is why DunkSpace has created our Play It Forward campaign. As we emerge from this crisis, we must restore play for millions of children to bring back joy, community, and well-being to their lives as quickly as possible. DunkSpace will address the major concerns of youth organizations across the country. Equipment donations will support a range of community needs: at-home play packs, physically distanced play and full sports programming.
DunkSpace is aiming to help children overcome difficulties encountered during this time, and serve as a partner for youth basketball organizations across the country going forward.
