RALEIGH, N.C. – Former Word of God Holy Ram and current Washington Wizards guard John Wall returned home Friday morning for his 2nd annual “John Wall Back 2 School Giveaway.” The NBA All Star held the event at the Garner Road YMCA with the help of his mother, Mrs. Francis, and the John Wall Family Foundation (JWFF). Kids from around the Raleigh area were welcome to a morning of food, drinks, backpacks, and shirts as John addressed the crowd thanking each and every one of them for their support and encouraging kids to stick to their academics. The giveaway then proceeded to nearby Garner Magnet High School as Wall teamed up with ProCamps to hold a free basketball skills clinic to 150 kids in attendance. He participated in drills, interacted with the kids, and gave valuable knowledge back to those looking to follow his footsteps. For more information on the event please visit or
