Macquarie Clinic in Alice Springs
On Saturday the 20th of August, we held a resiliency basketball session at Alice Springs Basketball Association ran by NBL Hall of Famer Cal Bruton and one of our youth coaches Evelyn Adu.
After a long break due to the impact of Covid-19, it was great to be back to catch up with old and new friends as well as connecting with some of the local community youth.
Thank you to Macquarie Group for making this possible and to everyone that participated during our wonderful trip around Central Australia.
We will definitely be back soon for more community projects and to connect more with the youth.
