NBA Alumni Visit Beaumont Children’s Hospital for a Day of Caring

The National Basketball Retired Players Association (NBRPA) partnered with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals on December 19 for a “Day of Caring.” Members of the newly-formed NBRPA Detroit Chapter spent time with patients, family and staff at Beaumont Children’s Hospital, wishing them happy holidays, sharing some shooting tips and signing autographs. Included in the visit were Willie Norwood (Detroit Pistons), Maceo Baston (Indiana Pacers/University of Michigan) and Earl Higgins (Indiana Pacers/Eastern Michigan University).

According to the NBRPA website, more than 40 former professional basketball players from the NBA, ABA and Harlem Globetrotters participated in the “Day of Caring,” visiting patients at children’s hospitals in Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Detroit, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Orlando and Phoenix.
