Jamal Murray, a star player for the Nuggets, surprised North Middle School students on Tuesday as he acted as a coach during a unified basketball game against Aurora Hills Middle School. The game provided opportunities for students with and without disabilities to participate in school sports, promoting teamwork and inclusion.

During the game, Murray helped raise $5,000 for UCHealth for children with disabilities. One student, Felipe Avalos, showcased his impressive basketball skills while dancing on the court with a huge smile on his face. His brother, Johnathan Avalos, also participated in the game and expressed how much fun they were having together.

Murray praised Felipe’s abilities on the court and emphasized the importance of teamwork and having fun. The focus of the game was not on winning or losing but on enjoying the experience. Aurora Public Schools received a generous donation of $5,000 from UCHealth to support all unified sports in the district. To further support the cause, Murray matched the donation.

Reflecting on his participation, Murray stated that he wants to inspire kids to give back and show them the importance of supporting others in their community. He believes that this donation will help continue promoting teamwork and inclusion in school sports while providing equipment for all unified sports in the district.
