The And-1 Live Basketball Tour is not just about high-flying athletes and fancy on-the-court tricks; each year, Mailloechii Global partners with And-1 Basketball in efforts to serve and give back to our local community. The professional athletes on the tour, at one point, were students just like the individuals of Northview High School. The team hosts motivational speeches touching on the importance of education, the benefits of physical-wellness, and the value of working as a team to achieve goals bigger than ourselves as individuals. The And-1 Tour’s global success has involved the ability to make critical life decisions, the determination to push the human body to its highest level of performance, and the understanding that everyone accomplishes more with a self-less attitude. Furthermore, as we do every year, And-1 will be donating $1 per ticket sold to the game as well as donating proceeds from concession stand sales at the game. Last year, we had over 500 people to attend; this year, with continued school and community support, we hope to reach our goal of at least 1,000 people in attendance as we continue to grow this community event each year.
“Thank you all for your efforts and support; we are excited to host this event in the city of Dothan, once again”.
