Shoot Hoops Not Drugs 2011
Six free regional Shoot Hoops Not Drugs basketball camps with former University of Kentucky basketball star Jeff Sheppard are scheduled for 2011. Presented by Phoenix Products, Shoot Hoops Not Drugs camps are fun, interactive, and provide a safe, drug-free activity where children have an opportunity to interact with positive role models while learning fundamental basketball skills. In addition, parents and guardians attend a UNITE Foundation education program on how to talk to their children about drugs. Information on the signs, symptoms and dangers posed by drugs and avoiding becoming an "Accidental Dealer" will also be given.
