LIVE KOBE BRYANT TRIBUTE – Mental Health The Kobe WayYour Passion 1st
On Sunday, January 26th, 2020, the world lost a basketball icon, a dedicated father, and a great advocate for mental health awareness. Kobe Bryant amazed us on the basketball court, but inspired athletes and fans around the world off of the court by sharing his struggles with anxiety, insecurities, and a way to overcome it all with his Mamba Mentality!
The Mamba Mentality is about obsession. It is about prioritizing your professional goals over having a normal, balanced life. It is about playing without fear, mastering your craft and wanting not only to win, but to dominate! The five pillars are passion, obsession, relentlessness, resiliency, and fearlessness.
In partnership with IPlayGames, Reflect Media, Echo Theater Collective, CPD, and the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), YourPassion1st would like to invite you to a Kobe Bean Bryant (August 23rd, 1978 – January 26th, 2020) TRIBUTE hosted on the unfortunate day of his passing.
In recognizing Kobe and his Mamba Mentality, we have organized and amazing tribute event! Below are details of what you can look forward to:
