Our Champion, Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry, will once again lead his Three for Three Challenge by donating three life-saving bednets to families in need for every three-pointer he makes in the 2014-15 season. Announced yesterday evening before the start of the first regular season game, the Warriors also announced they will match Curry’s Challenge up to $5,000.
During his first two seasons of the Challenge (2012-13 & 2013-14), Curry donated 1,599 bednets to help protect families from malaria. During the 2012-13 season, Curry established a new NBA single-season three-point record with 272 three-pointers made and donated 816 bednets, and last season (2013-14), Curry recorded 261 three-pointers, providing 783 bednets to families.
Since his time as a college star at Davidson, when his college roommate, Nothing But Nets Champion Bryant Barr, educated him and encouraged him to get involved, Curry has been a committed Champion in the fight against malaria.
Last year, Stephen traveled with Nothing But Nets to Tanzania, to help deliver more than 38,000 life-saving bednets to children and families at the Nyarugusu Refugee Camp. He saw first-hand how malaria can devastate families and helped hang bednets in their homes. He also met with our partners, including the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC).
