THE Misamis Oriental provincial government has announced that the 2012 Jr. NBA
Clinic in Cagayan de Oro City originally scheduled for January 21-23, 2012 at the Xavier University-Ateneo de Cagayan campus is pushing through at an earlier date and different venues.
“We earlier informed Jr. NBA officials of our intent to postpone the event in deference to the recent Sendong disaster and needed to use what would have been our equity in the project for relief assistance,” said Gov. Oscar S. Moreno. “However, they offered to shoulder our counterpart equity and in addition, also conduct NBA Cares in some evacuation centers and affected areas.”
The revised schedule will start on Thursday, January 19, 2012 with the 2012 Jr. NBA Coaches Clinic from 1-3PM with US-based NBA Coach Martin Conlon, followed by basketball clinic for boys and girls 10-14 years old from 3-5PM at Basketball Clinic, ACSAT Gym, Max Suniel St. Carmen, Cagayan de Oro City.This will be followed on Friday morning, January 20, 2012 with an NBA Cares activity at the Provl Capitol Park before flying back to Manila in the afternoon.
NBA Cares is the league’s global community outreach initiative that addresses important social issues such as education, youth and family development, and health and wellness. The NBA and its teams support a range of programs, partners and initiatives that strive to positively impact children and families worldwide.
As part of the league’s mission to demonstrate leadership in social responsibility, NBA Cares reaches communities through philanthropy, hands-on service and legacy projects. Since October 2005 when NBA Cares was launched, the league and teams have raised more than $165 million for charity, provided more than 1.7 million hours of hands-on service, and built more than 625 places where kids and families can live, learn or play in communities around the world.
