MIAMI – Heat president Pat Riley and legends Alonzo Mourning and Glen Rice had a little fun Friday while helping to renovate the homes of two U.S. Military veterans.
The three took part in the mannequin challenge, the newest craze sweeping the country. The video shows Mourning and Rice frozen with shovels in their hands while Riley is looking over them, standing on a porch, one arm resting on a column and a water bottle in his other hand.
Riley, Mourning and Rice spent their Veterans Days working alongside members of the U.S. Armed Forces and Rebuilding Together Miami-Dade to help renovate the homes of two local veterans from Miami: Rickey Grant, a former First Class Airmen of the U.S. Airforce; and Tymothi Coffee, a U.S. Navy veteran.
The Heat funded the renovations for both homes that will include the installation of a new roof, flooring, toilets, light fixtures and appliances as well as interior/exterior painting and new landscaping.
Coffee is a U.S. Navy veteran from Opa-Locka. He served in the U.S. Navy Reserves as a guard for six years and was involved in Operation Noble Eagle and Enduring Freedom during which time he earned the National Defense Service Medal, Armed Forces Reserve Medal and Global War on Terrorism Service Medal.
The project is part of the Heat’s Home Strong Initiative.
