Hundreds of third- through sixth-graders participated in the Justin Wynn Leadership Academy 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament on March 15 at Evanston Township High School’s Beardsley Gym. Proceeds of the tournament will benefit Erika’s Lighthouse and Curt’s Café.

The Justin Wynn Fund Leadership Academy helps youth develop leadership skills and a deep sense of responsibility for improving their communities. The Fund was created in 1987, when Justin Wynn died in an accident at the age of 9. Though just beginning his life, Justin exemplified the qualities of leadership, citizenship and sportsmanship.
