Christmas Day in Miami means Miami Heat game and this year, the team will be hosting the Cleveland Cavaliers. This will be the first time Lebron James will come face to face with his former Heat teammates and fans.
“I know the Miami Heat fans are grateful for the four years that he has given us,” NBA Hall-of-Famer Alonzo Mourning told Fusion. “We are very thankful for what he did for the city of Miami and for the organization so I don’t think they hold any grudges at all.”
After a two-year sabbatical, NBA hall-of-famer Alonzo Mourning will hold his annual fundraising event on Dec. 27-29 in Miramar Regional Park with a new name – “Zo’s Winter Groove.”
The weekend-long event aims to raise money for educational and health initiatives in South Florida. In the last 15 years the event has helped raise more than $10 million.
Mourning told Soccer God’s host Nando Vila that he hopes shifting the fundraiser from the summer season to winter will make the event accessible to both locals and visitors who are eager to donate to the Mourning Family Foundation.
“It’s still going to be a fun-filled, family oriented, weekend of events that there is something for everybody to enjoy,” said the former Miami Heat star.
Earlier this year President Obama appointed Mourning as a member of President’s Council on Fitness, Sports, and Nutrition.
