SANDUSKY, OH (WOIO) - More than 8,000 students and family members attended the LeBron James Family Foundation's "family reunion."

LeBron James and his mother Gloria were both in Sandusky for the event, which is held annually at Cedar Point.

"We're all family," James said while addressing the crowd.

The event comes as just weeks after the grand opening of the I Promise School, a collaboration between the Akron Public School system and the LeBron James Family Foundation. The school hosts 240 at-risk third and fourth grade students.

"Thank you guys for allowing me, a kid from Akron, Ohio, to be your inspiration," James said.

The families and their guests were treated to a free day at Cedar Point and lunch before summer vacation ends.
