Alaska native and current Miami Heat point guard Mario Chalmers held his first “Miracle Shot” Basketball Camp at Bartlett High School in Anchorage, Alaska back on August 10-13. Proceeds from his camp went to benefit his Mario V. Chalmers Foundation.
Chalmers played for Bartlett High School before moving on to the University of Kansas where as a junior, he helped his team win the 2008 National Championship when he hit a three-pointer with 2.1 seconds left in the game.
Students were excited to have the opportunity to meet Chalmers, a tangible example of success within in their own community. The Anchorage Daily News was at the camp, you can read the article here http://www.adn.com/2011/08/10/2009649/miamis-chalmers-returns-home-to.html
