The Brooklyn Nets organization and players brought smiles to the faces of 50 kids from the NYC Administration for Children Services on Monday via the Build-A-Bike Event that took place at the Barclays Center.
A part of the Brooklyn Nets Assist program, which stands to support Education, Athletics, Health and Wellness and Community Development. The franchise was not only able to bring in four players from the team in Deron Williams, Jarrett Jack, Jerome Jordan and Jorge Gutierrez along with BMX Rider and Queens Native Nigel Sylvester in to interact with the 50 children that were in attendance.
The children teaming up with 100 volunteers took time to build bikes, in what was billed as a volunteer project for all. It was unveiled afterwards that in fact the bikes were for the youth in attendance-as smiles were on the faces of both the Nets and all in attendance today.
1495 Sports is proud to bring the following video coverage from the event:
