SANDUSKY, Ohio (WOWO): Earlier this summer, Cedar Point sent out a now-famous tweet stating that it would rename one of its coasters “King James” if LeBron James returned to Ohio. That outcome is now known. But the “ball” was back in the park’s court.
Today, Cedar Point announced a joint decision with the LeBron James Family Foundation on a multi-year partnership which includes benefits that go far beyond renaming a roller coaster.
The highlight of this new partnership will take place next summer when Cedar Point hosts all of the kids who are actively involved in the foundation’s “Wheels for Education” program and Akron I PROMISE Network for a day of fun with their families in the program's annual “I PROMISE Family Reunion” event. Additionally, next spring, Cedar Point will hold a first ride auction with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the LeBron James Family Foundation.
