On Thursday, Suns forward Amar’e Stoudemire announced he and his Each 1, Teach 1 Foundation will be teaming up with the MLK Basketball Classic – a one-day showcase featuring a total of ten games on Martin Luther King Day. Five of the contests will be played at Wells Fargo Arena on the Arizona State University campus while the other five will take place in Tucson at the McKale Center on the campus of University of Arizona.

Stoudemire established his non-profit organization, the Each 1, Teach 1 Foundation in 2005 to help provide philanthropic support to at-risk children and families. The foundation has provided aid to families and children in the US and globally, most recently in Sierra Leone.
