Meet our Hoops for St. Jude ambassadors


Many kids dream of playing in the NBA. We’ve put together an impressive lineup of players and coaches who want to make sure all kids have a shot at making their dreams come true.

St. Jude and the NBA are teaming up to unite the NBA community in supporting St. Jude's mission of finding cures for childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

From hospital visits to social posts, our Hoops for St. Jude ambassadors are showing fans how it pays to give back.

Join us in stopping childhood cancer.
