We pride ourselves on empowering the youth of Southwest Louisiana to take control of their health and wellness by exercising regularly and having a well-balanced diet. This year, The Junior League has the pleasure of partnering with Ronald Dorsey, owner of RD Hoop Source Academy, LLC. Coach Dorsey’s lifelong passion of basketball has translated from his successful collegiate and professional careers to an academy that instills leadership, discipline, and teamwork.

For those of you who know the Dorsey Family, you know this has been a very traumatic week, which ended in the unexpected loss of their precious 2-year old son, Jaylen “Jay-Jay”, due to an unexplained illness.

We first met Jaylen at the gym – basketball in hand, huge smile on his face, full of wonder and curiosity. He had a way of bringing people together; all drawn in by his adorable personality!

The Dorsey family has been a light in this community for years, mentoring and making a difference in the lives of kids and their families through Coach Dorsey’s RD Hoopsource Academy and all the families Carmen comes into contact with in her work at Fairview Elementary.

Please consider joining us in helping Coach Dorsey, Carmen and their daughter, Sydney, get the unexpected medical and burial expenses handled. We know it won’t take away the pain they are feeling, but it may help ease other concerns so they can focus on their family in this difficult season. Any money donated beyond expenses can be used to set up a memorial or special scholarship in honor of Jaylen. This is nothing they would ever think to mention, they are so used to pouring out into the lives of others, but they need to be on the receiving end of our care and kindness at this time.

If interested in assisting in this way, and you would like to make a tax deductible donation, make checks payable to INSPIRED UP and put “Dorsey Family” in the memo section and 100% of your donation will go to the Dorsey Family or you can send a donation directly to the family (see RD HoopSource Academy address below) or use cashapp @ $rdorsey7
