2020 NBA Star Weekend kicks off in Chicago with FIT Celebration


PhilBoxing.com




CHICAGO -- The NBA, Kaiser Permanente, YWCA Metropolitan Chicago and Chicago Public Schools partnered to dedicate a refurbished gym, parent resource center and a brand new mindfulness and peace room at Emmett Till Fine & Performing Arts Magnet School.

NBA legends Robert Horry, Glen Rice, and Felipe Lopez and first time All-Star Domantas Sabonis led 100 students from the school in on-court basketball clinics, shared healthy snacks, and took part in STEM and meditation activities that encourage total health.

Renamed in honor of former student Emmett Till, the school provides socio-emotional, athletic and enrichment programs to students in the Woodlawn neighborhood.

The NBA Legends and All-Stars encouraged the youth of Emmett Till school to stay active, eat healthy, and practice mindfulness because it will set them up for grand success as they grow older.

Through these FIT activities, the NBA has put on activities and provided resources to thousands of youth and families in cities throughout the US.
