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

Jamal Murray, a star player for the Denver Nuggets, surprised students at North Middle School on Tuesday by acting as a coach rather than a player during a unified basketball game against Aurora Hills Middle School. Unified sports provide opportunities for students with and without disabilities to participate in school sports.

During the game, Murray helped raise $5,000 for UCHealth to support 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 reflecting on his participation in the game, Murray stated that he wanted to inspire kids and show them the importance of giving back. 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.
