PRESIDENT

Bahamian, 3x NBA Champion, Actor, Entrepreneur

A native Bahamian, Rick grew up in The Bahamas and has family and friends that still reside there today. “As I witnessed the massive devastation and destruction that Hurricane Dorian has caused, the annihilation of homes, facilities, and massive displacement of people and entire communities I was moved to create the Bahamas Relief Foundation. Together with a top team of friends and partners we are dedicating our energy and extensive relationships to support the Bahamian government in the mammoth task of national recovery.”

About Hurricane Dorian

 

Hurricane Dorian was the most powerful tropical cyclone on record to strike the Bahamas and region, and is regarded as the worst natural disaster in the country's history.

The resultant damage to the Islands was catastrophic, most structures were destroyed or swept out to sea, and at least 70,000 people were displaced.
