Our theme for this Round ball Classic is Operation Give Back, where we are reaching back, going back, and giving back. First, we must reach back for our young people to teach them about their gifts and purpose in life. Then we must go back to the basics by laying down the foundation that will guide them to a clear direct path to succeed. Finally by giving back it proves that we are willing to invest into the young lives that will become future leaders in our communities. We challenge business, community, and religious leaders to join us as we invest into these future leaders of today.
