A pair of basketball shoes for Nicholas who wants to go out for the team

Posted Oct 12, 2023
Nicholas has entered his 8th-grade year fully immersed in all things sports. He's been thoroughly enjoying his time playing football. Recently, Nicholas has decided to give basketball a try, and he's super excited about it! He's been telling everyone about how joining sports teams last year was one of the best things that has ever happened to him. These new shoes would allow him to try out for the team and find another sport he's passionate about.

Nicholas is 14 years old and lives in NE

Nicholas is such a motivated learner, always eager to acquire new skills and knowledge. I'm so impressed that he taught himself how to play the piano and even performed at his school's talent show! It's clear that he puts a lot of effort into everything he does, and he values hard work above all else. He enjoys spending time outdoors and he was able to convince his foster parents to build a chicken coop.
