On Saturday, February 13, Andrew Wiggins welcomed hundreds of kids from the star’s hometown City of Vaughan for a special basketball experience that unveiled a new look and multi-year investment at Dufferin Clark Community Centre. Andrew greeted fans, thanked them for their support and unveiled updated facilities that feature new hoops and a scoreboard, refurbished benches and equipment, a remodeled youth room and plenty of adidas gear.
The event also featured on-court competitions including free-throw, three-point and slam dunk contests. The special give back tipped-off a unique, multi-year partnership with Andrew and the Dufferin Clark Community Centre where adidas will supply footwear, uniforms and equipment for youth basketball leagues and a lasting impression for years to come.
On Friday, February 12, adidas gave basketball players from Bill Crothers Secondary School an all-access pass to the adidas VIP Suite for an intimate experience with James Harden where he joined the players for a photo shoot, one-on-one conversation and an exclusive revealing of unreleased kicks. The players will see Harden again when the Rockets play the Toronto Raptors on March 6.
