The group of young student athletes are excited to take to the hardwood in this ‘once in a life time opportunity’, with all of the NBA alumni and celebrities. More importantly the team is excited to play for a great cause. The West Park Foundation helps people ‘get their lives back’ by supporting those that have had life-changing health challenges. The hospital is located in West Toronto, and it is there that patients and their families are supported in responding to adversity and adapting to new circumstances. It’s a restorative experience like no other.
