Luguntz Dort creates the Maison Dort Foundation

NBA players use the time between the seasons to address issues that are impossible to keep up with the pace of the competition. For Luguntz Dort, the Oklahoma City Thunder frontman, this prompted him to take the necessary steps to start the Maison Dort Foundation.

Such a foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of young people in Montreal (the player’s hometown), Oklahoma City and central Arizona. As for its unique mission, it focuses on promoting youth health and wellness through sports, giving children the opportunity to actively participate in team sports such as basketball and soccer.

With these words, Dort, who renewed his contract with OKC for five years and $87.5 million at the end of free agency, explains how important it is to take this step and be able to help others.

“Basketball and soccer not only kept me healthy and active as a kid, but these team sports kept me in a safe environment and set me on the right path to success. I learned principles like hard work and teamwork; things that will undoubtedly carry over into many aspects of my life now,” he said in a statement. He said. CTV News Montreal.
