Both girls had a blast! They have never had the opportunity to do anything like this before and the trip was such an eye-opening experience. From playing so many games, to playing such a different grade of basketball, having a lot of fun and most of all - going on a plane! At 12 years of age, they are very fortunate to have had this experience.

I am so grateful that you helped us out with this contribution.

Dear Free Throw Foundation

Thank you for helping me have a successful trip to Melbourne. I learnt a lot from this trip because of you 🙂

I made a lot more friends and came out really happy of how I developed in Basketball and as a social person. So thank you!

Dear Free Throw Foundation

Thank you for the opportunity to go to Melbourne for the Southern Cross Challenge. I learnt lots of new things, met some new people and made some new friends. I had fun playing Basketball and learn lots of new tips and tricks. Thank you again!
