SunsFit Day of Play
The Phoenix Suns partnered with Playworks to have a fun filled day of play with 300 students at a local elementary school. The day started with a talk about mental and physical health. The suns shared what fitness means to them and how we keep our players as fit as possible. We then had a performance from the Suns dance teams and a surprise appearance from the Gorilla. After that Suns employees, dancers, and the Gorilla led the students in an hour of multiple game stations. Each kid in attendance took the SunsFit pledge to play an hour a day and to strive to eat healthy as much as they can.
Suns players make regular appearances at many of the hospitals across the valley. They make a point to go out of their way to brighten up the spirits of all the patients they see. They sign autographs, take pictures, and even bring gifts to the patients they visit. Our players also make sure that the hospital employees know that they are appreciated too by dropping off gifts for them as well.
