A “Welcome Home LeBron Community Rally” will highlight several days of activities next month tied to LeBron James’ return to his native Akron as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The rally is set for Aug. 8 at InfoCision Stadium, with a tentative start time of 7:15 p.m. It will follow his foundation’s third annual Wheels for Education family event.
On Aug. 2 and Aug. 10, events tied to the LeBron James Family Foundation’s first PROMISE Project will be held.
Local businesses are coming together to help James, his Foundation and Nicole Curtis from HGTV’s Rehab Addict to renovate the home and yard of one of its Wheels for Education students. Yards at the homes of nine other Wheels for Education students also will be re-landscaped with the help of Akron businesses and volunteers.
More details of the events, including how the public can participate, will be released in coming days.
