Essendon star player Nathan Lovett Murray will be a special guest at the National Indigenous Vibe 3on3 Basketball and Hip Hop Challenge – the Vibe 3on3® – at Swan Hill on 29 October, 2010.
Nathan joins a host of talented performers and celebrities attending the Vibe 3on3® to pass on valuable experience, encouragement and words of wisdom to students.
Rapper Lady Lash and breaker Jason Campbell will be inspiring with lyrics and dance, while artist and comedienne, Kevin Kropinyeri, is guaranteed to get those smiles – and paint brushes – going.
The Vibe 3on3® brings together Indigenous and non-Indigenous people for a fun free day of basketball, dancing, music, health and culture. The event encourages sportsmanship, teaches new skills and builds self-esteem as well as promoting reconciliation at a grassroots level.
Hosted by former Harlem Globetrotter Dwayne Cross and Aboriginal basketball star Claude Williams, the action-packed Fun Friday event features a 3on3 basketball tournament, rapping and break dancing lessons, art workshops, a dance competition and a health expo, all accompanied by a backing track of the latest RnB, hip hop and Indigenous music.
To participate in the Vibe 3on3®, young people need to pre-register in teams of five through their school by Friday 22 October. The event is capped at 500 kids so get in quick to gain your spot at the 3on3. The event will be held at the Indoor Sport and Recreation Centre, 15 Gray Street, Swan Hill from 9am-3pm.
The Vibe 3on3® aims to promote healthy lifestyles, strengthen communities and boost self-esteem. The Vibe 3on3® is also an excellent opportunity for health services and related organisations to introduce themselves to the wider community. For more information go to www.vibe.com.au
