On the afternoon of July 11th, Kevin Durant, in his second day in Wuhan, visited the packed Guanggu Stadium University to meet and share his basketball stories with passionate local hoop fans. Durant also met with volunteers from the GameChangers program and encouraged them to keep up their efforts to help the disadvantaged by using sports to give back to the community.
KD watched the Under-19 regional finals of the Baller’s Network Summer Basketball Tournament and presented awards to the champion team. They will have the opportunity to participate in the All-Star training camps as well as the Greater China Tournament of Champions in Shanghai this August. As part of his visit to Wuhan, Kevin Durant met and saluted the efforts of a volunteer group from Hunan Normal University who is behind the innovative community project to help poor rural children.
