For 29 years, the St. Louis Eagles Basketball Club has sought to “mentor young men and women through the game of basketball, providing the highest level of national exposure so that college scholarships can be earned.” About 75 percent of those who participate come from low- to moderate- income families, with 40 percent living at or below federal poverty guidelines. This program would not be possible without the generous support of the St. Louis, Missouri community.

Their “Sweet Sixteen” Fundraiser is their single fundraising event of each year. This year, living up to our vision of “bettering the communities where we all live and work,” Corizon Health was proud to donate $5,000 towards the club’s ultimate mission to help participants in the program obtain scholarships for college. Since 1996, the program has produced five McDonald’s All Americans and Washington Wizards NBA player, Bradley Beal.
