Ohio connections to Curry, James spur promotion for newborns

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Newborns at the Ohio hospital where LeBron James and Stephen Curry were born will get some special gifts during the NBA finals as those stars face off.

Akron-based Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. is giving care packages to parents of children born in Akron-area hospitals through June 19.

James and Curry were both born at Akron City Hospital. The two stars are going against each other as the Cleveland Cavaliers play Curry and the Golden State Warriors.

Golden State won game one Thursday night.

The Akron Beacon Journal (http://bit.ly/25D5xRk ) reports families of the newborns will receive a set of four tires, an “Akron Born” onesie and a car seat.

Summa Akron City Hospital, Cleveland Clinic Akron General and Akron Children’s Hospital are participating to help deliver the packages.
