What began as mutual admiration and fandom is growing into something so much more. As basketball fans, we've followed Glenn Robinson III since his days at the University of Michigan, and have watched excitedly as he's grown into a complete NBA player with the Indiana Pacers. You can imagine our excitement when we learned GRIII was also a fan of ours, too!
As we began talking with GRIII, we learned he was going to be competing in the 2017 NBA Dunk Contest and we just knew he was going to do something big. Glenn is a huge advocate of youth sports and supports underserved youth both in his hometown of Gary and throughout the Indianapolis area, so we thought we might add a little extra incentive, promising to donate cases of KRā and sports equipment to a charity of his choosing if he won.
And win he did, totally dominating the entire field and putting up two perfect scores out of his four attempts! We were pulling hard for him and were doubly excited to make good on our promise of donating gear as a part of our KRā for Play initiative.
To cap things off, we headed to the Shepard Community Center in Indianapolis with Glenn and a car full of brand new sports equipment and KRā for all. Putting smiles on kids faces AND teaching them the importance of making healthy choices is a win-win for us!
