Siakam Rewarded for Community Outreach

Raptors’ Siakam Receive’s February NBA Cares Community Assist Award

Things have been pretty spice in Toronto this season.

Pascal Siakam has broke out in his third NBA season and is quietly running away with the League’s Most Improved Player award. Not only has his play warranted an All-Star nod, but his work off the court has drawn recognition as well.

On Friday morning, Siakam received the February NBA Cares Community Assist Award by Kaiser Permanente for his contributions toward empowering and inspiring the youth both locally in Toronto as well as internationally. The award is given to one player each month.

When the lights aren’t on, Siakam visits numerous schools throughout the country as a Right to Play ambassador attempting to encourage student to rise above adversity through sports and education. A representative for the Sun Life Dunk for Diabetes program, Siakam also helps encourage healthy and active living.

“I am excited and honored to receive the Community Assist Award for February.  My passion is basketball and I’m so lucky to be able to use this sport to give back to my community,” said Siakam.  “Basketball is bigger than just a game.  It’s an opportunity to give back to my new home of Toronto as well as Cameroon.”

With his consistent community outreach efforts, all of Siakam’s efforts clearly don’t go unnoticed.
