Vanessa Bryant continues to mourn the loss of her husband and daughter in a tragic helicopter accident. They were two of nine people killed after a chopper went down in Southern California on Jan. 26.
As Vanessa and her family attempt to move forward, she has decided to rename the Mamba Sports Foundation to pay homage to her late daughter, Gianna.
Mrs. Bryant made the announcement on Instagram with a heartfelt post.

Because there is no #24 without #2, we have updated the Mamba Sports Foundation to now be called the Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation. Our mission remains the same – and stronger than ever – to provide opportunities to young people through sports. Thank you all for the outpouring of support and your kind donations to date as we carry forth Kobe and Gigi’s legacy.. We hope to empower young athletes in a world they left us all to help shape. #Mamba #Mambacita #wings @mambamambacitasports
