VIDEO: Duke players team with hospitalized kids in 'Lean On Me'
As part of a non-profit to help improve the living conditions for hospitalized kids, Duke players collaborated with sick children in this outstanding video.
Even die-hard Tar Heel fans would have a hard time finding fault with the Duke basketball team’s efforts as they teamed with sick patients from Duke Children’s Health Center to make this heartwarming video.
The “Lean On Me” project stemmed from former Duke basketball manager Joey McMahon’s non-profit, The Monday Life, whose goal is to improve the living environment in children’s hospitals.
Safe to say he succeeded.
The video was recently shown at Cameron Indoor during Duke’s Countdown to Craziness and had a predictable result.
“An entire stadium singing Lean on Me, together,” as McMahon wrote. “Plus, the rock star patients attended and even joined in on the dunk contest.”
To be fair, it's tough to tell whether the three huddled patients were more excited or terrified when Jabari Parker dunked over them. Either way, job well done.
