Jamal Murray makes unexpected appearance at unified basketball game for Colorado students

Jamal Murray, the star Nuggets player, took on a new role as a coach on Tuesday at North Middle School. During a unified basketball game against Aurora Hills Middle School, Murray helped raise $5,000 for UCHealth to support children with disabilities. The game brought together students with and without disabilities to participate in school sports and promote teamwork and inclusion.

One of the students who stood out during the game was Felipe Avalos, who displayed his impressive basketball skills with a huge smile on his face. Felipe’s brother, Johnathan Avalos, also participated in the game and expressed how much fun they were having together. Jamal praised Felipe’s abilities on the court and emphasized the importance of enjoying the experience rather than focusing on winning or losing.

Aurora Public Schools received a generous donation of $5,000 from UCHealth to support all unified sports in the district. Jamal matched the donation to further show his commitment to supporting this cause. Reflecting on his participation, Jamal stated that he wants to inspire kids and encourage them to give back to their community. The donation will be used to purchase equipment for all unified sports in the district, benefiting students and continuing the spirit of teamwork and inclusion in school sports.
