Denver Nuggets Visit Kunsberg School


The Denver Nuggets basketball team, the Nuggets cheerleaders, and mascot Rocky “Claus” Monday brought holiday cheer to the Kunsberg School  for chronically ill children on the campus of National Jewish Medical and Research Center. The players helped elementary school students make holiday cookies, greeting cards and tree ornaments, then read “The Night Before Christmas,” to the 75 elementary school students. The Nuggets also donated a variety of books for the school’s library.
