Tennis Shoes 4 Africa was formed by Coach Modise and his student athletes to help provide shoes to African children. Many African children dream of playing tennis and other sports but cannot afford the necessary equipment, including shoes. Tennis shoes 4 Africa brings these children one step closer to thier dream fo participating in sports.
Through athletics scholarships, these children have the opportunity to receive a college education. Coach was able to earn a Bachelors degree in Marketing from University of Hawaii at Manoa and a Masters degree in Human Performance from the University of New Orleans. Coach Modise hopes that through Tennis Shoes 4 Africa other children can have the same opportunity he has had.
All proceeds from this event will go directly to supporting the effors of TS4A.
