The 13thannual Justin Wynn Leadership Academy 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament will be held on Saturday, March 4, in Beardsley Gym at Evanston Township High School. The co-ed tournament is for youth in grades 3, 4, 5 and 6. A portion of the proceeds from this year’s tournament will go to help support Wildkit Buddies, an Evanston Township High School organization that promotes friendships between students with special needs and their peers.
The Justin Wynn Fund was established in 1987 in loving memory of Justin Michael Wynn, who died in a swimming accident when he was nine years old. From this tragedy, the Wynn family and friends founded The Justin Wynn Fund and later the Justin Wynn Leadership Academy with the mission “to celebrate and nurture youth leaders by helping them develop a deep sense of self and responsibility for improving their communities.”
