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

Jamal Murray takes on the role of coach during unified basketball game, inspiring kids and promoting inclusion

Jamal Murray, star of the Denver Nuggets, took on a new role as a coach on Tuesday during a unified basketball game between North Middle School and Aurora Hills Middle School. Unified sports provide an opportunity for students with and without disabilities to participate in school sports.

During the game, Murray helped raise $5,000 for UCHealth for children with disabilities. One student, Felipe Avalos, showcased his basketball skills with a huge smile on his face as he danced on the court. Felipe’s 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, and Murray matched the donation to further support the cause.

After participating in the game, Murray stated that he wanted to inspire kids and show them how important it is to give back. The donation will be used to purchase equipment for all unified sports in the district, benefiting students and continuing to promote teamwork and inclusion in school sports.
