Grant money given to support youth sports

Phoenix Suns Charities is matching a $25,000 grant to support MaxInMotion scholarships for Valley kids. The scholarships provide children in need with the opportunity to participate in the Jr. Suns and Jr. Mercury basketball programs across Arizona.

Recipient organizations of the MaxInMotion scholarships include the Chris-Town YMCA and the Rosenzweig branch of the Boys and Girls Clubs of metro Phoenix.

“It is our hope that these scholarships allow children in need to not only participate in youth basketball programs, but to have perpetuity within these programs,” said Robin Milne, executive director of Phoenix Suns Charities.

The grant will allow young athletes to play on community basketball teams for multiple years, in an effort to teach them life lessons and foster their talents through sports. Phoenix Suns Charities, along with the Jr. Suns and Jr. Mercury programs, have been partners of MaxInMotion for the past three years.

MaxInMotion is a nonprofit foundation dedicated to providing young athletes an opportunity to compete at both the recreational and competitive levels in youth sports. The foundation provides financial support directly to youth sports organizations throughout the state of Arizona, to help underwrite inclusion in sports programs for boys and girls that would otherwise not be able to participate due to financial constraints.
