Do you live within two hours of New York City?

If yes, do you have plans this Sunday?

The answer is, no, you don't.

But you do now, dummy.

This summer, the SEED Project and Assist NYC are teaming up to offer an open run experience like no other. You have the chance to play with your closest friends, NBA Players, Current and Former D-1 Athletes, Syracuse Basketball Legends and SEED Academy alumni.

It gets even better.

For every participant that competes in the open run, one middle school student in Senegal, West Africa will receive school supplies and be able to participate in SEED programing for an entire year. SEED participants receive: free school tuition, school supplies, a backpack, basketball sneakers and gear, and weekly academic tutoring, basketball training, and English language classes.

Assist NYC is run by former Syracuse University basketball players Todd Burach and Griffin Hoffmann, which is cool. And here's where it gets really cool...

Check out who's participating...

Kris Joseph (Syracuse '12) Gorgui Dieng (Louisville '13) James Southerland (Syracuse '13) Brandon Triche (Syracuse '13) Jerrelle Benimon (Towson '13) Tor Watts (UCONN '14) Erving Walker (Florida '12) Baye Moussa-Keita (Syracuse '14) Rick Jackson (Syracuse '11) Scoop Jardine (Syracuse '12) +SEED Project Alumni +Surprise Guests
