2017 FOR CHARITY BOUNCE
It’s hard to believe our first full calendar year at Charity Bounce is coming to a close and it has been great to hit our stride. Over 6,000 young people have participated in our programs including the Stand Tall All Stars team and launch of the Hoops for Harmony program with Stand Tall programs running every week. It is encouraging to see the impact the programs are having on young people in such a short time and we are even more energised to grow the reach of the Stand Tall programs in the coming year into new regions.
We wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all our supporters both big and small. Thanks first of all to all the participants across all the programs that have made this year so much fun. We have really tried to live out our focus to inspire positive change and have found ourselves inspired by the amazing resilience, courage, and determination within the stories of everyone we have encountered across all our programs. Thanks for being a part of this and trusting us with your time and access to your lives in different degrees.
Thanks also to our amazing staff and volunteers who have really been willing to do whatever it takes to make a difference and make every program as special as we possibly could, providing access to so many ‘out of reach’ opportunities for those who came along.
A big thanks to our funding partners including the Department of Employment, Northern Territory Government, Department of Social Services, the Department of Defence, and more who have made all of the outcomes we have achieved possible. As well as our funding partners we have to say a big thank you to our private donors who have believed wholeheartedly in what we set out to do and have made a huge difference in the lives of many through basketball.
And thank you to everyone who has been watching it all unfold, wishing us all the best, and volunteering their time and effort, and sharing the story of Charity Bounce to anyone who would listen.
