Everything on Shaq is big…especially his heart!
To celebrate the launch of Soda Shaq, all-natural line of cream sodas, AriZona Beverages and Shaquille O’Neal came together to give back to children, support sports and a healthy lifestyle. Shaquille was the guest of honor and spoke from first hand experience about how playing in a camp like Basketball City as a kid gave him a safe place to play basketball and grow.
Speaking to the campers, Shaquille O’Neal shared that his road to success was not easy but he believed he would achieve his goals. Shaq shared the importance of getting good grades, staying focused and encouraged the children to, “Follow your dreams, listen to your parents and you can be whatever you want to be.” As part of the initiative, Don Vultaggio, Wesley Vultaggio and Spencer Vultaggio of AriZona Beverages alongside Shaquille O’Neal presented a $5,000 check to Lee Isenstein and Chris Kenny of Basketball City for ten underprivileged kids to attend basketball camp in Shaquille O’Neal’s honor. Basketball City helps teach children the fundamentals of basketball and the importance of team sports.
He will be making many kiddos smile! Team Shaq!
