Dreamchasers in Association with Nicole Gooden Stop the Violence Basketball Tournament
On October 14, 2012 Dreamchasers United teamed up with Nicole Gooden to produce the Stop the Violence Basketball Tournament.
The tournament was held at St. Joseph High School in Westchester, IL. The event lasted over 12 hours and included a youth basketball tournament for boys and girls ages 10 - 13 as well as an adult basketball tournament for men ages 18 and over.
Dreamchasers United also partnered with RC2 Comics Games & Collectibles to provide entertainment for the youth and Body Genisis Chiropractic Care to perform free back screenings during the event.
The tournament was a success due to the fact that we were able to bring the youth and adults of the Chicagoland area together to promote peaceful gatherings and to gain awareness of the senseless violence occurring in our communities.
Special thanks to Nicole Gooden (Maywood Politician citizenstoelectnicolegooden.com) and our good friends at RC2 Comics and Body Genesis Chiropractic Care.
