MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) – Milwaukee Bucks star Wesley Matthews has come back to Madison to help give back.

He has teamed up with Madison Public Schools Foundation to help launch a new initiative aimed at making it easier for students to get active. Called ‘Play Every Day,’ this initiative will help provide funds to support the Madison Metropolitan School District, allowing faculty to replace old physical education and recess equipment, as well as help students cover participation fees.

Matthews propelled Play Every Day with an initial $50,000 gift. He is also matching up to $50,000 in donations from the community.

“It’s our responsibility to be the pillars of hope, stability and safety to our youth,” said Matthews, “My hope is that you all can the see the power our youth holds and help us positively impact kids’ lives.”
