Prior to Tuesday’s Nike uniform unveil, children from Mount Saint Vincent and Denver Children’s home took to the practice court for a hands-on basketball clinic with Nuggets community ambassadors Mark Randall, Ervin Johnson, and Walter Davis.
“For them [kids] to be able to leave their facilities for the Nuggets practice court is a dream come true,” said Deb Dowling, Nuggets Vice President of Community Relations.
The visit to the practice court was a surprise in of itself but Gary Harris added an extra surprise when he capped the clinic by signing t-shirts of each participant. Meghan Peters, representing the Mount Saint Vincent Children’s Home, delighted in the experience. “The biggest piece a lot of our kids can tend to miss is the quote-on-quote childhood experiences so this just goes above and beyond and is a memory from their childhood that is going to last the rest of their lives.”
“It’s our [KSE] privilege to be able to work with kids of all ages and abilities,” added Dowling.
