From Friday, March 7, until Thursday, March 13, the NBA and its players, coaches, and staff are participating in Hoops for St. Jude Week, a week-long celebration in appreciation of the outstanding work and research of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in the field of children’s cancer and other terminal illnesses. Throughout the week, the NBA Family is using its global media platform – including social media, online, and in-game promotions – to highlight the success St. Jude has had and raise awareness of an extremely important cause. NBA coaches are wearing St. Jude lapel pins during games, and St. Jude ambassadors – players and coaches who support and promote the cause – will use their celebrity along with social media outlets, public appearances, and other opportunities to help raise awareness of the mission and encourage others to contribute.
