Turiaf Continues To Give Back
Wolves center Ronny Turiaf has worked toward brightening the days of Twin Cities’ kids since his first day with the organization—literally. His introductory press conference as held at the Ronald McDonald House near the University of Minnesota campus, and later that day he held a special film screening for the moving Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.
Helping young kids who are going through difficult medical conditions is near and dear to Turiaf. He’s been through it before. As a young athlete just drafted into the NBA out of Gonzaga, he underwent successful open heart surgery. As a result, he vowed to help others who are going through similar struggles—especially kids. That’s when he first introduced his own Heart 2 Heart Foundation.
