Heat Fans Donate $8,000 to Boys & Girls Club for LeBron

Adam Kuperstein and Channing Crowder present a check for $8,000 to the Boys & Girls Club after their LeBronathon.

When LeBron James made his decision to join the Miami Heat in 2010, he raised a lot of money for the Boys & Girls Club. This time around, LeBron didn’t hold a televised special to raise money, but hundreds of fans of the Miami Heat came through with a big donation.

The idea for the "LeBronathon" originated with the “Kuperstein and Crowder” show on WQAM as a way to get LeBron to stay in Miami. The duo decided to raise money for the Boys & Girls Club, one of James’ favorite charities, in hopes LeBron would be moved to stay in Miami.

Obviously LeBron didn’t choose to stay in South Florida, but the Kup & Crowder fans still donated $8,000 that was presented to the Boys & Girls Club Monday. It showed that Heat fans were able to rise above the devastation of losing LeBron and still help the community.

As NBC 6’s Adam Kuperstein said, “Well done Miami!”
