UMMC forward Emma Meesseman: 

- We decided to support and excellent idea of involving the kids in sport. For over a week in the beginning of the practices, we signed the balls. There were too many balls, but we knew that we did it for a good cause. It is great that due to this project many more children will be involved into sports and will have an opportunity to play basketball or any other kind of sport. I hope they will be happy. I would like to be a part of the project and give these balls to the kids to see smiles on their faces in return.
