The workout classes will be instructed by Sadiq Abubakar, Pawel Maslag, Andreina Marrero, Emily Samuel, and Carter Gallo.

As a final event, Southern African Braai, sundowners, and live music will be performed during the evening from on August 4th at Amagansett, Long Island from 6-9pm.

Hoops for Hope has helped over 10,000 young children around the ages of 6-16 in underserved areas in Zimbabwe and South Africa to improve important life skills like learning about health and diseases, gender equality, happiness, and education in order to better themselves and the community. 

Our job is to remind young people that we can still have a better tomorrow even though things are not so good today,” Ngoni Mukukula, Hoops for Hope director said in a video on their website.
