Shoot Hoops Not Drugs 2012
Five free regional Shoot Hoops Not Drugs basketball camps with former University of Kentucky basketball star Jeff Sheppard were held in 2012. 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 was also given.
At the final camp, the Kentucky Army National Guard’s Civil Operations Unit from London set up their popular inflatable obstacle course.
