Mario Chalmers Brings “Miracle Shot” Back Home to Alaska

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
