Am I My Brother’s Keeper? Community Basketball Tournament was organized to celebrate the youth of Little Rock during National Children’s Day (June 11th). This day was created to honor the children in our lives, National Children’s Day is a day to slow down our fast paced lives, turn off the technology and refocus on the important things, family. In 1995, President Clinton proclaimed National Children’s Day as October 8th. He was later followed by President Bush in 2001 who declared the first Sunday in June as National Child’s Day. However, National Children’s Day is generally celebrated the second Sunday in June.
The purpose of this tournament is to promote education, community involvement and youth sports to combat the increase in Gang and Gun violence in Little Rock. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for youth sports and programming at West Central Sports Complex ran by Director Doris Wright from Ward 6 in Little Rock, Arkansas
