With the NBA season coming to a close, professional basketball players are globetrotting looking for the perfect vacation getaway. Kyle Lowry of the Toronto Raptors found his oasis at the idyllic Caribbean Luxury Included® Family Vacation destination – Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Villages & Spa. After helping lead the Raptors to the playoffs and win an Atlantic Division title for the first time in seven years in 2014 and becoming a first time NBA All-Star in 2015, Lowry was deserving of some well-earned rest and relaxation. However, he still found time to give back to the local Turks & Caicos community with a little help from the Sandals Foundation and the Rising Stars Basketball Club.
When the Rising Stars’ youngsters got to their daily stomping grounds where all that matters are basketballs and buckets, they had no idea the treat that was in store for them. As the club’s Communications Manager put it, the visit was a like dream for the young basketball players and an inspiration to keep pushing forward despite obstacles.
Lowry continued with the message that basketball is a tool that can be used by the kids to accomplish their goals. Lowry not only left the boys with words of wisdom but with some exclusive pointers to tighten up their game. Beaches Resorts and the Sandals Foundation were beyond grateful that Lowry chose to give back during his vacation. Are you a guest travelling to a Sandals or Beaches resort? Take advantage of the Sandals Foundation’s voluntourism opportunities such as the Reading Road Trip and Pack for a Purpose. When you give back, we all win!
