99Moves Foundation

The Surf Gardens community in Coney Island experienced major damage in 2012 as a result of Superstorm Sandy.  In response, Coney Island native and NBA veteran Sebastian Telfair has been leading efforts to rebuild and renovate basketball courts and community spaces in the neighborhood where he grew up.  NBPA Foundation provided a grant to Sebastian’s 99Moves Foundation to help ready three basketball courts for summer tournaments.  The need remains great and Sebastian continues to work with NBPA Foundation as well as agencies of the federal and city governments to continue the work.
