Chris Bosh makes the rounds, pledges dollars for rebounds to After-School All-Stars

Since agreeing to join Dwyane Wade and LeBron James on the Miami Heat, Chris Bosh has been a busy man. Just this week alone, he’s appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and helped ring the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange.

You can watch his Late Night segments, including one in which Fallon tries to shoot baskets over the 6 foot 10 forward, here.

This morning he joined executives from After-School All-Stars to ring the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange. After-School All-Stars, founded in 1992 by California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, raises money for after-school enrichment programs for at-risk kids in 13 cities.

Bosh was recently named a celebrity ambassador for After-School All-Stars, and he joins an “All-Star” group that also includes new teammate LeBron James. Bosh has pledged $20 to the organization for every rebound he records this NBA season.

Bosh is no stranger to publicity. He appears to relish it. He tweets from @chrisbosh, has his own channel on and you may recall the campaign he launched to get himself to the 2008 NBA All-Star Game in New Orleans. Check out one of those campaign ads here:
