FreshChoice Nelson Donates to NZ Under 18 Women’s Basketball Player
As part of the monthly community fund grant, FreshChoice Nelson donated $500 towards 17-year-old student Lauryn Hippolite, who has been selected to play for the New Zealand Under 18 Women’s Basketball team.
Hippoliteand her team will be travelling to Guam this year for the Under 18 World Championship qualifying tournament which will cost $3000 in total.
Lauryn Hippolite moved from Nelson to Christchurch this year and attends Middleton Grange School. “This year I moved from Nelson so that I could gain the training and assistance required to attend a Division 1 College in America in 2018 and play basketball while gaining a good quality education”.
“This has been a major goal of mine for the last few years as I wish to play professionally when I am older”.
“Thank you for helping me achieve my goals and reach my dream” says Hippolite.
