This foundation was started in 2015 to share the strength of character of Ms. Natasa Kovacevic with the youth of Europe, through the sport of basketball.
At the age of 19, Natasa Kovacevic was a top female player on the Serbian national team. She had just signed her first professional contract to join a club in Hungary when tragedy struck. A multi-car traffic accident flipped the team's bus, killing its coach and GM, and severing Natasa's lower left leg and foot.
Without a moment of self-pity, Natasa worked to rebuild her life, and carried a message of encouragement for youngsters and inspiring her peers. She started the foundation that bears her name in 2014 and Mr. Kern was appointed as a member of the Board of Directors at that time.
When FIBA Europe named Natasa its Ambassador for Youth, she organized a legends game to raise money for the foundation and the outreach programs. Incredibly, she returned to play in exhibition matches in 2015, wearing a prosthetic. Now a movie is in the works concerning her personal story of courage.
