Pour 3 Points: Baskeball for Kids

This past weekend I had the chance to watch a Basketball tournament organized by the Montreal Junior Board of Trade (JCCM) for the non-profit organization Pour 3 Points. My company's team was 1 of 16 corporate teams who came together to play for change and to support local students.

The organization "Pour 3 Points" transforms coaches into life coaches for young athletes, giving them the skills needed to succeed in school and in life. This local organization works with multiple schools in disadvantaged neighbourhoods of Montreal and offers mentoring, dropout prevention and tutoring programs through sports teams.

Even though I'm not a huge sports nut, I enjoyed watching the games and it made me happy to see all the people who took time out of their weekend to come play and support their teams. Our team's fundraising goal was $2,000, and we managed to raise a little over $1,600 by game day. If you would like to donate to this cause to help us reach our goal, please visit our team's page here.
