NBA Player and Myrtle Beach High School Alumnus, Ramon Sessions, is partnering with the Boys & Girls Club of the Grand Strand. Together, they will be launching their capital campaign to raise funds for the construction of a new building complete with educational space, media center, technology lab and a gymnasium with a full basketball court. Ramon Sessions will not only be a lead contributor, but plans to be involved in the entire process and with the youth and teens the center will serve. A new building will enable the Club to serve more youth and teens in the Grand Strand, as well as provide them with more opportunities to reach their full potential.
“I grew up in the Racepath Community—and it may be small to most but it was big in my eyes. There were many people in Racepath who helped me get where I am today.” Ramon Sessions said while reminiscing about days past, “As a kid, I played outside on the streets every day, and that was the norm. Cars would pass by blowing their horns, but we didn’t pay them any mind and just kept on playing. As an adult, and upon my many returns, I started having visions of opening a youth center so that the next generation could have a better place to go than the streets. So, partnering up with an organization like the Boys & Girls Club of the Grand Strand is a perfect fit.”
