Always managing to keep himself busy over the summer with either his love for soccer or love for filmmaking, Suns guard Steve Nash has found a way to combine the two passions in his latest video promoting the game.
There is also a good cause behind the videos other than raising awareness for the sport itself. The video raises awareness for the “Football-For-Good” program which Nash says he hopes can, “help bring community centered academy football to children in war effected regions.”
“I’ve made a viral video to drive people to our community center and soccer academy project in Uganda’s website,” Nash said in a statement to the Suns. “There’s also a contest attached to win a trip to the ‘Showdown in Chinatown’ – my charity soccer match.”
With a donation of just $5, fans will be entered to join Nash at this year’s “Showdown in Chinatown” – an event that pits some of the world’s top soccer and basketball stars in New York City. Last year at the event, Nash was joined by fellow NBA stars Leandro Barbosa, Baron Davis and Jason Kidd.
