The NBA raises more than 80 million dollars in its solidarity campaign against the coronavirus

The NBA has raised more than $ 80 million with its #NBATogether global solidarity campaign to fight the coronavirus, as a result of the 400 activities it has promoted with the participation of 300 players, legends and technicians from the NBA and the WNBA.

Over the past three months, the NBA has funded 7.9 million menus for families at risk of food failure and has provided 10.2 million face masks for healthcare and vital service workers worldwide.

Likewise, the 30 league teams and 22 personal players have contributed to pay the salaries of the employees of their respective wards and franchises, as the competition recalls in a statement.

The Spanish players in the league have also shown their most caring side, not only through their participation in public service videos (such as those broadcast by Pau Gasol and Ricky Rubio), live on Instagram and Twitter (such as his own Pau Gasol and Serge Ibaka), or from the Jr.NBA at Home training program (as in the case of Willy Hernangómez), but also through their respective foundations.
