Chelan High School graduate and NBA star Joe Harris partners with Thrive Chelan Valley to positively change kids’ lives.

No buzzer beater can ever compare to impacting children’s lives for the better like Thrive Chelan Valley and Joe Harris agrees!  Thrive is thrilled to be joining their efforts with Joe and his father to help at-risk kids find and develop their untapped potential.

“We are very fortunate to partner with Thrive. It is a tremendous opportunity for us to use the game of basketball and the many life lessons that come with it as a tool to give back to our community. We are looking forward to providing assistance to youth programs in the Lake Chelan Valley in order to prepare them for life off the court.” Joe Harris Sr.

“Thrive is excited and honored to partner with a young adult whose life can speak to our mission: If a child has the love, support, and encouragement they need, they really can reach their full potential and pursue their dreams.” Amy Davis, Executive Director, Thrive Chelan Valley

Thrive is honored to have such an amazing opportunity to collaborate with Joe Harris. Through this partnership, more young people will be reached, and seeds of hope will be planted. All children need to know their inherent value and with the help of Joe Harris and Thrive, this goal is no longer out of reach.
