Go Auto donates $500,000 to resurface Edmonton Public Schools' basketball courts
In June 2023, Go Auto donated $500,000 to the Edmonton Public School Foundation in partnership with the Stingers Foundation's 'Fresh Hoops' program. The $500,000 donation is the first part of a continuing campaign to support the Fresh Hoops initiative. The community is invited to donate to a matching program to make this initiative as successful as possible. All funds publicly raised will be matched by Go Auto up to $500,000 until 2025, making for a total possible donation of $1.5 million! The full potential donation would refurbish approximately 75 outdoor basketball courts around Edmonton.
The first court upgrade was unveiled on June 1, 2023, at Delton School in northwest Edmonton.
What is Fresh Hoops?
'Fresh Hoops' is a partnership between the Edmonton Stingers and the EPSF to refurbish basketball courts at schools across the Edmonton Public Schools. The partnership aims to make basketball accessible and fun for all students and the community and includes upgrades such as backboards, hoops, nets, paint, and other improvements.
