Grizz, youth dribble down Beale for fitness

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Before Sunday's game against the New Orleans Hornets, the Memphis Grizzlies dribbled off the court and down Beale Street, but it wasn't just to practice their ball handling skills.

The Grizz teamed up with Youth United Way for a special fitness demonstration as part of NBA Fit Week.

Over 150 children and teens dribbled basketballs a half mile down Beale Street to the FedEXForum Plaza, in the inaugural Memphis Grizzlies Dribble Parade.

Proceeds from the parade went to Youth United Way, which will create more opportunities for teens to participate in activities across the Mid-South.
