PHOENIX — March has been a difficult month around the country and the world with the spread of the coronavirus pandemic and now its message is to help Arizonans who need it.
Professional and collegiate sports were put on hold in the middle of the month due to coronavirus concerns, but that hasn't stopped sports organizations from being vocal about supporting those in need and staying inside.
The Arizona Cardinals, D-backs, Suns, Coyotes and Mercury have all participated in initiatives to support those in need during this time, whether it's been donations or other forms of assistance.
The Cardinals, in association with area health companies, are hosting a blood drive to meet immediate need at State Farm Stadium on Tuesday.
Sports organizations in the Valley continue to try to spread positive messages to Arizonans during this time whether from athletes directly or teams on social media platforms.
The Cardinals, Coyotes, D-backs, Suns and Mercury teamed up for a video to spread positivity and hope during the coronavirus pandemic and to give praise to those on the front lines working to combat the virus.
You can watch the #AllAZ video below:
"We pressed pause on the shared connection we all feel from sports," the narrator says. "It wasn't a choice, but maybe it can teach us a little about our community. For now, maybe we should stand up and cheer for something different."
The video moves along to honor first responders and healthcare workers battling coronavirus on the front lines.
"Let's stay together, even if we can't be together. Be safe, be kind, show gratitude."
