Paul George Invests in OKC, Reels Youths into Experiencing the Outdoors

There are kids throughout downtown Oklahoma City who might have never had the chance to hold a fishing pole, cast a line out into the water and see what they reel in if it weren’t for Paul George. On Monday, the dynamic Thunder forward made sure that for 13 Oklahoma City schools, children will have the opportunity to expand their horizons.

At the Chesapeake CHK|Central Boathouse along the Oklahoma River just south of downtown Oklahoma City, 45 fourth-grade students from Stanley Hupfeld Academy at Western Village helped George launch his Paul George Foundation’s outdoor initiative, in partnership with the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation (ODWC) and their OK “Fishing in the Schools” Program (OKFITS) this year.
