Percy “Master P.” Miller and his son Romeo will sponsor a free basketball camp for over 1,000 children, who will get to meet special NBA superstar guests Earvin “Magic” Johnson and Mark Jackson.
Miller, Romeo, Rashad McCants and Urban Born Founder Johnel Langerston are hosting the Game of Life Basketball Camp for children ages 7-16.
The NBA stars will teach the campers the importance of offense, defense, teamwork, motivation and education, all while improving their health and mental well being.
Miller, who attended the University of Texas on a basketball scholarship, turned into one of the most successful mogul’s in Hip-Hop, after a knee injury sidelined him permanently.
“This will be an experience that these kids will remember for the rest of their lives. My basketball coach help save my life, hopefully I can do the same for this generation,” Miller told AllHipHop.com.
In addition to the camp, Miller will host a free celebrity basketball game featuring Megan Good, Ray J, Anthony Anderson, Jalen Rose, Ray J. and others.
“The purpose of the camp is to allow children to have the opportunity to exercise their bodies and their minds…just because you come from a low-income community it doesn’t mean you can’t strive to be better,” Romeo stated. “We are hoping that with our camps we can inspire these kids to have vision, follow their dreams and believe in themselves. They need to know that education is essential and that they do have options.”
The free, Game of Life Basketball Camp begins Saturday (June 26th) at 8:00AM at Pasadena High School, in Pasadena, California. The Celebrity Basketball Game kicks off at 4:00 PM.
