NBA’s Corey Brewer hosts Youth Basketball Camp to Benefit Diabetes

Join former Gator and current NBA Minnesota Twins basketball player Corey Brewer for his Fourth Annual Back2Back Youth Basketball camp held in Gainesville on August 8-10.

Camp attendees will take part in education sessions, basketball drill stations and contests, player evaluations and 5-on-5 games, and more!

It has been fun to watch some of these kids develop their skills from year to year,” says Brewer. “I truly enjoy giving back to the community that has given me so much.”

Proceeds from the camp will benefit UF Health.  He created the “Corey Brewer Fight Diabetes Fund” to provide funds for diabetes patient programs, raise awareness, and offer education. Brewer’s father, Ellis, died of complications from diabetes in February 2011 at the age of 68.

The camp is open to girls and boys ages 9-17. Cost: $125 per camper, which includes daily lunches, a T-shirt, photos with Brewer, awards certificates and instruction from some of the top coaches in the region!  The academy will run 9 a.m. – 4 p.m daily.
