Checkpoint Charlie Foundation contributed to a transatlantic exchange between young adults from Berlin Kreuzberg who traveled to Eugene, Oregon, to play basketball with peers and bond over shared interests and activities. The objective was to give the players an opportunity to explore the world in the context of their passion of basketball. It was a success. The trip enabled them to expand their horizons and gave them a break from the tough environment that is Berlin Kreuzberg. The connections made with the players in Eugene are lasting results of this trip. Some of the Berlin players even hope to score an athletic scholarship for an American university in the future.
