Basketball Without Borders Teaches Teens About HIV/AIDS
July 21, 2006
This summer, the NBA is sponsoring "Basketball Without Borders" in Puerto Rico, South Africa, China and Lithuania. In the program, teens from all over the world learn about HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention while picking up basketball tips from the pros. In Puerto Rico, Orlando Magic guard Carlos Arroyo, former Utah Jazz player Jose "Piculin" Ortiz and former Milwaukee Bucks player Daniel Santiago helped inaugurate the camp. "The kids have the motivation to learn and to listen," Arroyo said. "We're definitely very pleased with what we have seen."
