Lin brings fun, games to underprivileged children

HUALIEN--Houston Rockets point guard Jeremy Lin Thursday brought good cheer and lots of fun to children in a remote village in Taiwan's eastern Hualien County, the same place he made a charity visit to last year.

After arriving in Shoufeng Township, the 24-year-old NBA star played tag with local elementary school students, even showing his support for the game's losing players by doing push-ups alongside them.

Lin had originally hoped for a game of basketball with the children, but his tight schedule did not leave enough time for it.

The Harvard graduate, who is the first Taiwanese-American to join the NBA, arrived in Taiwan a day earlier for an eight day visit, during which he will attend several endorsement events, followed by an evangelical gathering.

Lin and his friend, Rockets forward Chandler Parsons, will also co-host a basketball camp for high school and college students Aug. 18 20. He is scheduled to leave Taiwan for China on Aug. 21.
