Ojibwe Thunder Basketball
A fun day was had by all as we watched these 7 young warriors battle on the basketball court today. The Ojibwe Thunder from the Leech Lake Reservation in northern Minnesota played hard and with a great attitude, fighting against some big schools and big teams in a St. Paul tournament. They won one and lost one but never lost their drive! Kevin, Dad, and I were proud to represent Gathering Thunder Foundation and took them out for a lunch celebration afterward which they all enjoyed.
Such a neat group of boys! We are hoping to help them further, possibly with uniforms, tournament entry fees etc. These kids were unshakable in the midst of big money schools. Just seven boys...with giant hearts! Priceless!
Special thanks to Gil Zamora and Cindy Kingbird for showing up for these boys, being a constant in their lives and excellent role models. It was a pleasure to meet and spend time with them today!
