When Special Olympics athletes and NBA stars get together, its all about fun!
NBA Basketball without Borders European tour arrived in Portugal for the first time ever and Special Olympics was there to welcome their basketball heroes.
Basketball without Borders is the NBA and FIBA’s global basketball development program that uses sport to create positive social change.
On Thursday, August 15th a Basketball Without Borders camp was hosted in Almada with almost 60 Special Olympics athletes participating in a basketball clinic with NBA players and coaches.
The athletes, both male and female, took part in shooting, dribbling and passing drills. A fantastic day was enjoyed by everyone and the athletes received a strong message from their basketball heroes: “Let the power and joy of sport transform your life and help you reach your full potential.”
