“If I could just a little bit of sunshine in their life…”
Bo knows how to inspire. The multi-sport mega-athlete is embarking on a 300-mile biking journey through his home state of Alabama, which is currently mired in a state of disarray as it was recently hit with a massive tornado. Bo Jackson’s goal? To raise $1 million for the Governor’s Emergency Relief Fund to assist with the recovery. Joining him are a group of other prominent Nike athletes, like Ken Griffey Jr., Scottie Pippen, Lance Armstrong, and Picabo Street, and during this ride, Bo will wear four special colorways of the Nike LunarTR1 decorated in colors that represent his success and contributions to his former college and professional teams, like Auburn and the LA Raiders. At the end of the ride, a special event will take place this Saturday at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheatre with Bo, the families of the victims, ride sponsors, survivors, and more. Take a look at the inspirational video below and check out all four colorways of these ‘Bo Bikes ‘Bama’ colorways and let us know what you think.
