The Documentaries were filmed in China, Dallas, Chicago and Iraq - each film telling a unique story about how the love of the game helps real people rise above their circumstances.
Laylan, a determined girl from Iraq, rises above expectations to become a college basketball player despite the cultural challenges surrounding her.
Scott Odom and his AMP1 team never give up on their dreams to play. Together they rise above limits to compete at a high level against able-bodied players.
'BBall on the Block' gives kids in Chicago’s toughest neighborhoods an opportunity to rise above conditions. Every Friday night during the summer, blocks across the city are transformed into courts, so ballers from all backgrounds can compete on the streets.
Chinese villagers in the remote mountains of Leishan nursed Shiau Xiao, an expert tour guide, back to health after he rolled his ankle during a pick-up game on their dirt court. Determined to repay their kindness and help them rise above isolation, Shiau helped them rebuild their basketball court.
Immediately after the launch of the first documentary the conversation around the Riseabove campaign spiked - people were very inspired and hyped up about the inspirational stories that were released each week and as a result, the videos quickly spread across the internet via Twitter and Facebook.
