Miami HEAT Say: "Thank You, HEAT Nation"

Free Light Pole Banner Giveaway Highlights Series of Activities

MIAMI – The Miami HEAT has launched “Thank You, HEAT Nation!” – a series of activities designed to reward HEAT fans for their loyalty and support, which helped the team secure four consecutive trips to the NBA Finals. The campaign began earlier today with a Random Act of HEAT. HEAT staffers descended upon two Marathon Gas stations to distribute free Marathon Gas gift cards to hundreds of unsuspecting motorists. Random Acts of HEAT, presented by Kia, is an ongoing initiative meant to inspire individuals, families, organizations and communities to reciprocate kindness through random acts of their own.

The following is a list of upcoming “Thank You, HEAT Nation!” activities. Additional activities will be announced via the team’s social media channels.
