P.H.A.S.E. 1’s mandate is to bring a greater awareness of the importance of literacy and 10 years ago we launched an initiative to place 10,000 students in the Air Canada Centre on June 14th to celebrate the release of bestselling author Eric Walter’s 10th instalment of his basketball novel Home Team, co-written by Johnnie and Jerome JYD Williams from the Toronto Raptors and featuring P.H.A.S.E. 1 Founder Wayne Dawkins as a fictional Toronto Raptors basketball star. The backdrop of the event was the celebration of the 10th anniversary of P.H.A.S.E. 1’s All Canada Classic “Rumble in the T-Dot”national high school all star game.
