NY KNICKS GUARD AND FORMER RAINIER BEACH ALUM JAMAL CRAWFORD HOSTS "HIGH TOPS AND HELPING HANDS" AT SEATTLE'S "TALARIS" TO BENEFIT SEATTLE PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOLS CERTIFIED ATHLETIC TRAINER SPORTS MEDICINE PROGRAM
SEATTLE -- New York Knicks guard Jamal Crawford and the Jamal Crawford Foundation present a Saturday night filled with fun, interactive games and celebrities June 14 to benefit Seattle Public High Schools Certified Athletic Trainer Sports Medicine Programs. Jamal Crawford Foundation's "High Tops and Helping Hands" will begin at 6p.m. on June 14 at Talaris Conference Center located at 4000 NE 41st Street in Seattle's Laurelhurst community.

"High Tops and Helping Hands" will include interactive games, mingling with local-area pro athletes including Portland Trail Blazer guards Brandon Roy and Martell Webster, Sacramento Kings center Spencer Hawes and a special-guest performance by the Roosevelt High School Jazz Ensemble. The benefit will help provide quality sports medicine training for trainers responsible for Seattle Public High School student-athletes.
"The Jamal Crawford Foundation is thrilled to be presenting this fun and entertaining event that will raise awareness and funds for Seattle Public High School Certified Athletic Trainers program -- protecting our student-athletes," said Crawford, who established his foundation in 2005. "The work of athletic trainers is essential. As parents of student-athletes, we want to know that our children will receive the best medical care on and off the playing field. Athletic Trainers are the first wave of treatment for student-athletes that face such unfortunate circumstances."
The Jamal Crawford Foundation is currently taking reservations for the June 14 "High Tops and Helping Hands" event up until 6 p.m. on Friday, June 13.
