Jamal Murray makes a surprise appearance at unified basketball game for Colorado students

Denver Nuggets star Jamal Murray made a surprise appearance at North Middle School, serving as a coach for a unified basketball game against Aurora Hills Middle School. The event aimed to provide opportunities for students with and without disabilities to participate in school sports.

During the game, Felipe Avalos, an 8th grader with disabilities, received special attention from Murray and the crowd. Murray noticed Felipe’s incredible abilities on the court and jokingly said to give him the ball and get out of his way. The focus of the game was on having fun rather than winning or losing, as all student-athletes enjoyed the experience.

Aurora Public Schools received a $5,000 donation from UCHealth to support unified sports within the district. Murray surprised everyone by matching the donation, showing his commitment to helping and inspiring children. The generous donation will be used to purchase equipment for all unified sports in the district, further enhancing the opportunities for students with disabilities to participate in sports.
