Students from Ledbury Park Elementary School and Rawlinson Community School were given a special treat on March 2 when they attended the Toronto Raptors-Golden State Warriors game.
Members of the DeMar DeRozan Slam Dunk Book Club met their group’s namesake courtside after a 104-98 Raptors win.
The enamored students gave the 6-foot-7 small forward a round of applause — he scored 32 points in his team’s victory — and asked questions about his path to stardom.
The grassroots program, started by former Toronto District School Board trustee Patrick Rutledge, encourages boys to read, while earning a chance to play basketball.
