Forty children from Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland had a unique opportunity to hear from past and present basketball players on Tuesday.
The Cavs and Smucker’s hosted a special panel discussion at the Broadway location, featuring current Cavalier John Henson and legends Austin Carr and Campy Russell. They were joined on the panel by Richard Starr, site director of two Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland locations. The discussion was emceed by Cavs in-arena host Ahmaad and a Cavs Kids Club Jr. Reporter.
The panel covered topics ranging from the speakers’ love of basketball to life lessons to sneakers. They imparted advice about overcoming adversity to the youngsters in attendance.
Following the discussion, the kids were able to take part in a variety of activities: a basketball clinic with Cavs Academy coaches, making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and playing video games with Cavs Legion.
The Cavs and Smucker’s also surprised the kids by telling them they will all be receiving a new pair of athletic shoes! The Cavs will take the group shopping at a later date to pick out their new shoes.
