“In 2003 I first got involved in basketball at Kids Unlimited. I had never dribbled a basketball before but I always wanted to be able to be a part of a team so I got involved with the KU Pass to Play program and found I really loved it. I stuck with it and over the years grew up being able to play at Kids Unlimited all year long.
Olsrud court became a second home to me and with the support of all the staff I became a better student and a better player. Because my parents worked long hours and did not speak English, they weren’t able to help me much but through Kids Unlimited, I got the support I needed to always be involved.
I found basketball was something I was good at and it was a gift that Kids Unlimited helped me recognize. It’s allowed kids like myself to be involved even though we often couldn’t afford some of the expenses. Kids Unlimited makes it possible.”
