Tyreke Evans of the NBA's Sacramento Kings teams up with VSP Vision Care to host a second basketball camp. The 2010 NBA Rookie of the Year is committed to providing care and free services to the deserving communities whenever possible. His two-day spirited camp will not only work on basketball fundamentals and life skills. Each camper is eligible for an eye examination and, if necessary, a free pair of glasses. And did you know that an exam can also help detect signs of diabetes? The Game Ready Moms didn't know that either - but learned more about it thanks to Tyreke's efforts to inform the public.

"Healthy vision is essential to a child’s ability to learn and achieve their academic and athletic potential. Since vision problems can begin at an early age, children should receive regular comprehensive eye exams — at 6-months-old, 2-years-old, before kindergarten and every year following."

We'll also talk to Tyreke about his experiences growing up and what he's learned during his first years in the NBA. As a professional basketball player, he continues to share the lessons he's learned with the willing, eager youth.
