At select Cavaliers games this season, we will honor Walmart Community Playmakers making a difference in Cleveland. We’re looking to you to nominate and tell us about the people around you making a difference. Do you know a service member, police officer, fireman, first responder or anyone that is being a Playmaker in your community? Nominate them below.
