Parade Route Clean Up

Ayres and NJHS students from MLK Academy beautify MLK Parade Route

San Antonio Spurs forward/center Jeff Ayres can't always find gardening gloves that fit - but that didn't stop him from pitching in to help MLK Academy Team Up Challenge students clean up the parade route for the largest MLK Day parade in the nation.

Ayres spoke to the students about his own story and path to the NBA, which included playing basketball at Arizona State University and graduating in three years. He encouraged the group - whose project focuses on creating a college going culture at their school - to perservere and to defy the stereotypes set before them.

After the event, students joined Ayres in paying tribute to the iconic "I Have a Dream" speech.Click here to watch the tribute and click here to see more photos from the event.
