Caama Sports welcomed Timmy Duggan to the show last week to talk everything Hoops Health Program and which communities they have been visiting this year.
Hoops Health program was developed in 2002 in Cairns and is still going strong today, they have been visiting communities like Warakurna, Irrunytju and Warburton running clinics and having great talks around healthy lifestyles, looking after the body etc.Timmy said the community response was overwhelming and very heart warming, they have a few more communities before heading back to Darwin.
They use basketball as the tool to help people overcome any obstacles or problems they may be going through in their day to day lives. The program runs 3 on 3 games, family BBQ's events and just anything to get the mob active.
We wish Timmy and his team all the best for the remainder of the year.
