Event description

Description


Emilee and Robert McGowan were devastated when their three-year-old son Myles received a brain cancer diagnosis. Myles fought a courageous fight, but unfortunately passed at the tender age of 5 yrs old.

Understanding that time is of the essence, Emilee and Robert were determined to celebrate Myles' life to the fullest. Teaming up with his Myles' God Father Kameo Williams, and began the annual basketball event Myles McGowan Coaches Classic fundraising event to honor and celebrate Myles' life and bring awareness to childhood cancer. Each year Myles' parent selects a charity of their choice to contribute monies raised each year during the basketball tournament.

Myles McGowan Coaches Classic basketball tournament is in its 13th year, and we are still celebrating the life of Myles McGowan, and we are still raising awareness for childhood cancer.

This year the basketball tournament will take place in Oakland at Merritt College August 16-18. Our staff have plans to provide a fun filled weekend of basketball games & seminars.

The event will feature some of your favorite players and coaches in a variety of activities:

•Couch Sessions (Pro & Player Panels)

•Colleg Visits

•Coaches vs. Coaches Unity Games

•Fresh Faces 2023

•2024 Faces On The Rise Youth Tournament

•Womens Select Game

With the blessings of Myles’s parents, and all of our past sponsors, donators, coaches, players, volunteers and participants, Myles Ahead of Cancer continues to reach ‘Mylestones.’ With your generous contribution, you can help fuel his legacy even further.

In the past, donated proceeds were given to the Ronald McDonald House. With your help, we’ll achieve our goal of raising $50,000 and again provide proceeds to the charity of choice selected by Myles McGowans parents.

Gone too soon but his infectious spirit is revered by all of the many lives he continuously touches.

Thank you for your support in bringing this charitable event to fruition year after year.
