Matthew was able to attend a Suns Clinic for the Special Olympics last week. We didn't tell him where we were going, but let him piece it together as we were going. So fun! He had several friends attend it also, so it was an overall great night for him! It's held at the US Airways Center and was put on by the Suns Organization during their week of service. Everyone helping out at the clinic is a member of the Suns organization in some way - from players - current and past - to the offices to the dancers.
The Suns Gorilla came down to make an apperance and entertain the crowd.
This wonderful man was going around to all the Olympians and helping them spin the ball on their fingers!
Matthew's group started out in the practice area first with retired player Steven Hunter. Our guys came up to his waist! LOL! They ran 1 drill with him.
Then they went to the other side of the court to run a different drill with members of the Suns Solar Squad.
Then they returned courtside to run some drills with Miles Plumlee.
Then to the other side with Shavlik Randolph.
It was the 1st year that we've been able to attend this event and it was awesome! The boys had a blast and it was well organized and so fun!
