Full Court Press For Awareness is a 3 point shooting competition between schools in the Philadelphia area. The purpose is to raise awareness for the rising H.I.V. rates in teens / young adults in Philadelphia.

Siloam Wellness was able to hold the first ever event last month and it was a incredibly successful event. The kids who participated all wanted to know when the next time they could compete was. Siloam WILL hold more of these events.. but needs YOUR help to do it!
