Warriors Read to Achieve Reading Rally, presented by Ross Dress for Less
The kids at Sanchez Elementary in San Francisco could hardly contain their excitement as the Golden State Warriors’ Patrick McCaw and Chris DeMarco entered the school auditorium for a Read to Achieve Reading Rally on February 5.
In partnership with Ross Stores and Reading Partners, the Warriors hosted the reading rally as part of their #BlackHistoryMonthIsGolden campaign. During the rally, Patrick McCaw and assistant coach, Chris DeMarco, shared the stage with a few remarkable students who read aloud from the book I am Martin Luther King, Jr., by Brad Meltzer, in honor of Black History Month.
“I thought basketball players hated reading, but I guess they actually love it… ‘Cause they were up there reading with us, and it was really cool!”, said one Sanchez Elementary student
Reading Partners SF Bay Area is thrilled to partner with the Warriors again this year, to encourage the love of reading and provide our students with once in a lifetime opportunities to meet their heroes on our championship team. We love to count our Warriors players among our network of thousands of volunteers and positive role models who promote literacy and learning for all.
