Hoop ‘Til It Hurts Foundation was built upon the belief that every child deserves the opportunity to benefit from competing in basketball. Our mission is to celebrate and to invest in kids in our hometown of Chicago and throughout the United States by providing athletic apparel and grants to pay for costs associated with tournaments, registration, league fees and travel expenses.
Hoop ‘Til It Hurts Foundation invests in kids who have the drive to play hard and to provide them with the resources they need on and off the court.
Michael “Skeet” Horton grew up in one of the toughest neighborhoods in Chicago. Basketball was where Skeet learned to be accountable, on and off the court. And when he played, he gave it everything he had.
We invest in kids who have the drive to play hard by providing them with the resources they need on and off the court. We provide grants to pay for apparel, league and travel fees as well as private academic tutors.
By donating to the Hoop ‘Til It Hurts Foundation you will be investing in kids who give it all on the court. You’re investing in families and in neighborhoods. You’re investing in the future.
