At Nothing But Nets, we’re big Warriors fans, thanks to a long partnership with Steph Curry. He just won his third championship, and as fellow NBA star and Nothing But Nets champion Anthony Tolliver said, it “couldn’t happen to a better guy.” So we wanted to celebrate three of his biggest accomplishments off the court. Here are just three of the reasons we love Steph so much (and why you should too)!
Over the next few weeks, he raised a total of $82,515 — that’s enough to send more than 8,000 life-saving bed nets to those in need! Steph not only raised an incredible amount of funds, he also made history: He is the first professional athlete to use a Facebook Fundraiser to raise funds for a non-profit.
Stephen wore the new kicks, as he worked out before a game against the Utah Jazz. The bright red colorway with netting design found on the heel was inspired by his involvement in the campaign’s efforts to send nets and help save lives from malaria. Of course, the shoes quickly sold out in most sizes!
Steph got to know the people in the camp, helped hang the nets, and still continues to support our work there. For every 3-point shot he makes during the season (which is a lot!), Steph donates three bed nets to Nothing But Nets, which has been 5,400 nets to date.
Whether you’re a Warriors fan or not, it’s easy to appreciate the amazing contributions Steph Curry has made. We couldn’t be happier for him and the Warriors as they celebrate their third championship win! It’s easy for you to get involved. Find out how.
