BOSTON and WELLESLEY, Mass., Dec. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Boston Celtics delivered a great dunk display during the month of November – led by Robert Williams with 19 dunks – to raise $105,000 for #SunLifeDunk4Diabetes. The fundraising campaign runs each November, National Diabetes Awareness Month, and supports the YMCA of Greater Boston's Healthy Habits program, which helps at-risk adults and families learn to manage their health through fitness, nutrition, and lifestyle changes to prevent type 2 diabetes. Each Celtics dunk in November raised $1,000 for Healthy Habits, while fans voted on Twitter for the best dunk each week to raise an additional $1 per vote. The weeks of voting culminated in a final vote for best dunk of the month, which belonged to Jayson Tatum from the November 19 game against the L.A. Lakers. The Celtics Shamrock Foundation matched donations up to $25,000.
