Featuring an all-star line-up of athletes and celebrities, the game promotes a heathy lifestyle rooted in water and supports international efforts to build wells across the globe for those who lack access to clean drinking water

SACRAMENTO, Calif., May 22, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Three-time NBA Champion and Olympic Gold Medalist JaVale McGee of the Sacramento Kings will host his annual JUGLIFE Water For Life Charity Softball Game on Saturday, June 15, 2024 at Sutter Health Park in Sacramento, California. As the co-founder of JUGLIFE, McGee promotes water as the foundation of a healthy lifestyle while also building wells around the world in areas that lack access to clean water. Leveraging a team of athletes, actors, educators, and other influential players, the game features advocates who use their platform to promote an active lifestyle with a focus on a primary ingredient: WATER.

"While most of us are privileged to have overwhelming access to clean water, there is a global population and communities in our own country that lack this fundamental human right. The Water For Life game allows us to have fun and raise resources to connect every person with water to thrive."

"Water plays a critical role in every person's success," said McGee. "While most of us are privileged to have overwhelming access to clean water, there is a global population and communities in our own country that lack this fundamental human right. The Water For Life game allows us to have fun and raise resources to connect every person with water to thrive."

A native of Flint, Michigan, McGee draws attention to the plight that families face when water becomes a luxury instead of a basic principle of humanity. Committed to raising awareness of the human need for water around the world and the lifestyle that clean drinking water can provide, the JUGLIFE team emphasizes the need to appreciate, conserve, and promote water as key to a successful life. With McGee and Kevin Huerter of the Sacramento Kings as team captains, this battle of athleticism will showcase skill and personality from some of the most captivating names in entertainment. With Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, Marshawn Lynch, Chris Paul, Matt Barnes, Odell Beckham, and more having played in previous years, the game also includes activities for the entire family in celebration of Father's Day weekend.

"Water is a building block of the planet and the foundation of the body," said Kez Reed, JUGLIFE's Co-Founder. "The Water For Life softball game allows like-minded individuals to merge their collective platforms and share that water is critical to life and the best choice we can make each day."

With more than 780 million people lacking access to clean and safe water across the world, a water crisis results in millions of water-related illnesses and deaths. Thanks to astronomical amounts of sugar in most consumer products, promoting water as the drink of choice reduces America's obesity rates and paves the way for optimal health. Benefitting JUGLIFE's mission, proceeds help fund interactive water education tours at public schools, fitness pop-ups, international wells, and more.

ABOUT JUGLIFE

Juglife began in 2015. Founders JaVale McGee and Kez Reed challenged themselves and their community to drink a gallon of water a day to encourage healthy habits. They soon began doing research and learned that over 800 million people live without access to safe drinking water. That is when they decided to form Juglife Foundation. Our foundation is on a mission to provide access to clean drinking water to under-resourced communities while promoting the importance of drinking water and encouraging a healthy lifestyle through physical activity. At Juglife, we host Water Education Tours to teach our youth about the importance of water while fundraising to build and maintain water wells in underdeveloped areas of the world. We are advocates of physical activity, so we've also begun our journey to build a sports complex for the kids in Uganda. As a team, we emphasize the need to appreciate, conserve and promote water to thrive? drinking water is essential to life.
