After gang violence almost took the life of Jae Allison eight years ago, Allison decided to move back to his hometown of Russellville, Kentucky to start the non-profit Givin' Back, a basketball camp help every Saturday. Allison uses his basketball camp to emphasis life-skills to keep the youth of Russellville from making the same mistakes he did. Not only does Allison run the camp, but he plays a fatherly figure in several of the kids lives to show them what it feels like to have that mentor in their life.
