Carmelo Anthony encourages kids to “Be More”
Melo hosts 15 kids who have overcome difficult situations to become successful
Last week in Denver was a memorable one for Carmelo Anthony, who hosted 15 kids (ages 11-14) from the Street Kidz program over three days to celebrate their efforts in overcoming obstacles in their lives in a positive way. The theme of the kids’ visit was “Be More,” a nod to Melo’s upbringing in Baltimore, but also an encouraging statement for youth to take an active role in creating their own destiny. Each kid in attendance had written an essay on their personal efforts to “Be More” despite the troubles that they have been faced with.
The kids joined Melo in handing out food to families in need at a local Boys & Girls Club and had box seats to witness Melo dropping 32 points in Denver’s big win against Los Angeles. On Friday, Melo took the kids out to lunch and discussed the “Be More” approach to life. The kids were able to share some of their own unique stories and gave Melo advice on how he can encourage more kids to “Be More”.
