Coach Kevin Ollie Gives Kids With Disabilities a Shot

$50,000 Gift from Coach Ollie gets ball rolling for new “inclusive” basketball court at Jonathan’s Dream Reimagined

West Hartford, Conn. (Dec. 26, 2014)—With Coach Kevin Ollie looking on, 20-year old Jamie Rowland, who has Down’s syndrome and six-year old West Hartford first grader Sofie Turek, who has neurogenetic disorder, took the shots of their lives. Swish. Swish.

A third swish came from Coach Ollie as he announced at a Friday ceremony at the Mandell Jewish Community Center that his charity Kevin Ollie Charity Classic is donating $50,000 to build “Kevin’s Kourt at Jonathan’s Dream Reimagined”.
