Orlando, Fla.–As part of NBA FIT Live Healthy Week, Orlando Magic guard J.J. Redick, through the J.J. Redick Foundation, provided more than 80 at-risk youth the opportunity to attend a free basketball clinic conducted by Redick on January 26.The youth selected for the free camp were members of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Florida.
"I wanted to provide a free basketball and leadership clinic to a group of deserving kids,” said Redick. “These kids will gain basketball knowledge as well as insight into the importance of education and leadership. Big Brother/Big Sisters is an organization that aligns with the vision of the J.J. Redick Foundation - that every child deserves to have a positive role model and influence on their lives."
The clinic included Redick as the main camp instructor, former Magic players and current Magic Community Ambassadors Nick Anderson and Bo Outlaw along with assistance from Magic basketball camp instructors.
