Fan Favorite in Kansas for WEPAC, a great charity cause.

Earlier in the year, I participated in the 2015 Hoops for Hope Charity Basketball Game in Ashland, Kansas. This event was put together by members of the WEPAC organization, to raise awareness about breast cancer, fund research, and fight for a cure. I documented my trip on my youtube channel, to experience it with me simply search “La’Keisha Sutton WEPAC.”

The energy and atmosphere in the gym at Ashland High School was one that I will never forget. Kiowa County Media Center covered the event and the complete game can be seen online. The basketball game featured a friendly competition between local high school girls, collegiate, and professional players all mixed together to raise breast cancer awareness.

Before the actual game took place, I was able to speak at a high school assembly encouraging the kids to believe in themselves, and in their dreams. The “We all we got, we all we need” chant competition between the kids was one of my favorite memories from the trip. Seeing the smiles on the faces of everyone in the gym during the event was unforgettable too. Being able to spend time with Olympic Gold Medalist, Ruthie Bulton and play alongside of her was very cool. The ladies in the WEPAC organization also allowed me to sell my Fan Favorite merchandise during the game. We sold out of everything!
