Day Three: Time flies when you’re having fun!
Time has flown right by this weekend and we’re already on this final day of this adventure. In advance of the Raptors vs Lakers game on Sunday night, the students were invited to attend and watch the pregame shoot-around. Sitting front row in courtside seats, the students watched the superstar athletes from both teams take shots and practice their pregame routines. They even got high fives and took selfies with some of the players during the warmup.
After an exciting first half of basketball, the students were escorted through the Raptors tunnel into the dressing room for an exclusive tour. They were then surprised by Masai Ujiri himself who addressed the students, welcoming them and letting them know they will forever be in his heart. One last group shot, with everyone embraced under the Toronto Raptors Basketball sign, marks the cherry on top of an unforgettable, inspirational, never-to-be-forgotten weekend.
