Jamal Murray Scores Victory for Disability Awareness through Unified Basketball Game

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

Jamal Murray was not only a star player for the Nuggets, but he also acted as a coach during a unified basketball game at North Middle School on Tuesday. The game was played against Aurora Hills Middle School and saw students with and without disabilities participating in school sports.

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

Reflecting on his participation, Murray stated that he wants to help inspire kids and show them the importance of giving back. He believes that by supporting unified sports programs like this one, we can continue to promote teamwork and inclusion in school sports.
