Sometimes in the craziness that is the NBA regular season and playoffs, we forget how wide and deep the love and support of our fans really is. Thunder fans come in all shapes, sizes and certainly….ages.
At Ranchwood Nursing Center in Yukon today they were celebrating Nursing Home Week. They chose to do it by ThunderingUP the center. More than 100 residents joined family members for Thunder Day, put together by the dedicated staff. The residents enjoyed Thunder decorations, a special national anthem and halftime singer and a day of full-court wheelchair Thunder basketball games. It was even complete with their own version of the Thunder Girls.
At our offices, we heard about Thunder Day and took them up on their offer to come out. We brought some Thunder t-shirts to toss, along with hats, pins and pennants. There were lots of smiles, pictures, and special moments that brought joy to the residents of the center. We love our fans!
