Calling All Mothers, Daughters (and Sons!), Aunts and Grandmothers!
Hosted by the Fox Whole Family Foundation, De’Aaron Fox, Sacramento King’s Point Guard, and his mother, Lorraine, hold their annual basketball clinic at Golden 1 Center. Held on Mother’s Day weekend and free to participants, attendees include Albie Aware breast cancer survivors and their children. The clinic provides participants with a chance to rub elbows with De’Aaron and enhance their basketball skills while having fun and learning together!
Hundreds of children between the ages of 6-14 participate with their mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and others. Together, they are seen throwing, passing, making bank shots, and dribbling the ball down the court. During the event, Lorraine speaks and shares insight into her own battle with cancer and De’Aaron talks about the importance of his relationship with his mother and family.

- Instruction from De’Aaron Fox, Lorraine Fox, and Junior Kings trainers.

“We are so pleased with the number of participants in these clinics every year,” says Amanda Nelson, Albie Aware Executive Director. “We are honored to get the visibility this event provides and look forward to seeing many more Sacramento youth out there with us next year!”
