FastBreak Foundation To Dedicate Renovated Basketball Court At Ronald McDonald House
The Timberwolves FastBreak Foundation, along with players J.J. Barea and Dante Cunningham, will dedicate a newly renovated basketball court at Ronald McDonald House in Minneapolis (818 Fulton St. SE 55414) on Tuesday, Oct. 30 from 3:00-4:00 p.m.
Ronald McDonald House was the winner of the FastBreak Foundation's Court Renovation Contest and received a $10,000 basketball court transformation at its facility.
The dedication event, led by Timberwolves studio host John Focke, will include speakers from the Minnesota Timberwolves and Ronald McDonald House. Barea and Cunningham will be at the presentation and will engage in free play with the children in attendance, as well as provide them with prizes and autographs.
The renovation included painting walls, placing Timberwolves/Lynx/Ronald McDonald House graphics on the walls and floors, adding new baseboards, new hoops/backboards and new gym equipment. The FastBreak Foundation sends a special thank you to Schoenfelder Renovations, Inc., Gopher Sport, Grafix Shoppe and Athletic Values LLC for their help in the renovation.
The court renovation and dedication is part of the FastBreak Foundation's October New Season's New Beginnings programming which reflects the excitement and opportunity a new NBA season brings not only to basketball enthusiasts, but to the community in which we play. It means highlighting those who work hard to create new opportunities for Minnesota’s youth; creating renewed spaces, energy and attitudes for learning and community development.
