Max took initiative to refurbish Seward’s only outdoor basketball court as a recreational gathering place for older youth. He organized a group of volunteers to replace the aging cement court with a new play surface, raising funds and gathering donations from local businesses to complete the project. Max took on fundraising and business donations, and in the end a volunteer crew to paint the new surface, making the Seward community a better place to live and play. Without his constant push to make the court something the community would find valuable, Max and his friends, family, and fans found ways to make a forgotten court better.
