The McKinnon Basketball Association successfully raised funds and awareness for the Zaidee’s Foundation over the course of Round 8.
Over Round 8 of the Big V season, our club turned towards supporting the Zaidee’s Foundation as it works towards creating a high awareness and generate discussion around the topic of organ and tissue donations.
The founder Allan Turner attended both games on Sunday at GESAC, where both our men’s team were decked out in a special Zaidee’s Foundation uniform for the round. Allan had the opportunity to talk to both teams about the foundation, and thanked them along with the women’s teams the night before for supporting the weekend so willingly. We raised $740 for the cause, and certainly created a deeper awareness and discussion around the topic.
