Photo taken at the 2018 3v3 Kumar ClassicIn 2013, Jay Kumar was an ordinary 13 year old boy who had an unrivalled passion for basketball. Midway through his season, Jay started to feel unwell and noticed that something wasn’t quite right. After suffering headaches, dizziness and fatigue, Jay was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), a highly aggressive and difficult to treat brain tumour found at the base of the brain. Nine days after being diagnosed, Jay passed away on Friday, May 9th, 2014. In the days and weeks after his passing, the Kitchener Waterloo community came together with an outpouring of support for Jay and his family and shortly thereafter the Kumar Classic was born. Since the inaugural tournament in 2013, the Kumar Classic has raised more than $20,000 for Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.

Youth Education Award recipient update

This my update since completing University: Since being diagnosed with a brain tumour, life has not been easy for me; University was no exception. I had my fair share of struggles during my time in school. I failed some and struggled in most classes, but overall, I had a great experience. I found myself taking on a new set of challenges, and changing my original plan of majoring in psychology, to double majoring in psychology and gerontology with a minor in French.
