The Grand Rapids Fusion and their star forward, Mr. Double-Double Delonzo Wilkins, have been pretty busy in the Grand Rapids community in preparation for their upcoming Fall 2016 IBA Tour.
At the start of ArtPrize 8, Wilkins went downtown and purchased 250 ArtPrize guide maps and bus passes for the community to use to get around and enjoy all the artists and creations, as well as do a little people watching.
Later, Wilkins found himself talking to a youth group about their paths in life. “I came from here, just like you”, Wilkins told the crowd at a local skating rink.
On the 25th, the Fusion’s Chuck McLaurin got married. Congrats, Chuck!
Later in the week, coach Marco Wilkinson teamed up with Eddie Grover and the S.T.R.O.N.G organization to sponsor their self-defense classes, based out of the LifeQuest Center at 1050 Fisk SE. Check out the article about Grover by TheRapidian.org.
The Fusion head out on the Fall 2016 IBA Tour when they play against the Kenosha Ballers in Wisconsin this coming Sunday.
