Hey Lakers Fans!
My name is Heather and this is my second season with the Los Angeles Laker Girls! Being a part of this organization for the second season in a row has been an honor and so much fun! It means so much to me to be able to give back to my community and cheer on the greatest NBA team, the Lakers. I don’t know about you, but my teammates and I are extremely excited about our record since the all-star break! We appreciate you fans always supporting the Lakers, so keep it up all the way through the NBA play-offs!
Speaking of the NBA All-star break that took place last month…..having the game here in our city (L.A.) was such an amazing experience! It was such a neat opportunity to be able to show the rest of the league our home and what we’re all about! My teammates and I got to be a part of each event - we loved all of our Lakers fans there! The exciting weekend ended with a bang, with the West taking the win and our own Kobe Bryant taking the MVP award! I felt so fortunate to be a part of such a memorable weekend!
My teammates and I enjoy giving back to our community. In fact, last week we did a special event in El Segundo called “Fit For Life”, sponsored by Anthem. This is one of my favorite events that the Lakers organization puts on and supports; it is meant to spread awareness/the importance of a healthy lifestyle to young kids! A few classes from local elementary schools won a contest that the Lakers put on, so they had the opportunity to come out and participate in our “Fit for Life” day. They learned about the importance of healthy food choices as well as making healthy exercise choices. A few Lakers players came and we all got to play fun games with kids for a couple of hours, teaching them different ways of staying fit, but still having fun while doing it!
Something else that my teammates and I are involved in is a dance contest online! The NBA is hosting a dance contest for all of the dance teams in the league! They have it set up as a bracket at www.nba.com/dancecontest/2011. Our team, the Laker Girls, made it past the first round; we would love if you all show your Lakers support and vote us on to another round! Check it out if you have time.
Thanks again Lakers Fans, for the constant support you show us and the Lakers team! The Los Angeles Lakers would be nothing without our fans! Not to mention, a three-peat would be impossible without you all! So let’s continue the support all the way through June! Go Lakers!
