Curry's 2013 trip to fight malaria in Tanzania
Stephen Curry, guard for the Golden State Warriors, traveled to the African country of Tanzania following the 2012-13 NBA season to participate in the United Nations' "Nothing But Nets" campaign.
Curry has been a part of "Team Buzzkill" since his time at Davidson College.
Curry is working hard with the organization to assemble and hang bed nets, protecting families from malaria.
For the kids
In 2010, the Center of Disease Control recorded that roughly 655,000 deaths were caused from Malaria; it's estimated that 86 percent of deaths globally were children.
Curry preventing Malaria from beyond the arc
Curry pledged to send three nets for every three-point shot he made during the 2012-'13 season.
Last season Curry broke the single season record for made three-pointers with 272.
Making a difference
With his recorded-breaking 272 made three-pointers, Curry was responsible for sending 816 malaria nets to Africa.
"In launching the Three for Three Challenge, I hope to not only provide much-needed bed nets to the Nothing But Nets campaign, but to also help raise awareness about ending malaria and let people know how they can assist," Curry said.
