Later tonight in the nation’s capital, Stephen Curry plans to wear a customized edition of his signature Under Armour Curry 4, honoring his longtime friendship with President Obama and the 44th President’s “My Brother’s Keeper” Alliance.
Founded in 2014, Curry has been a constant presence with the organization and its efforts to reach young men of color around the country through mentorship and community events. After appearing in PSAs and working with Barack’s cause, now he’s looking to generate even more awareness and funding. Curry plans to auction the sneakers off after tonight’s Warriors game against the Washington Wizards, with proceeds benefiting the MBK Alliance.
“The inspiration for the shoe I’ll be playing in today is every boy and young man of color in this country that need to know they matter – to their communities, their country, to me,” Curry said in an Instagram video.
The inspiration for the shoe I’ll be playing in today is every boy and young man of color in this country that need to know they matter – to their communities, their country, to me. Four years ago this week, the @mbk_alliance was created to reduce barriers and expand opportunity so nothing stands in the way of everyone achieving their biggest dreams. I’ve been proud to be part of that mission from day one, and I’ll never stop being my brothers’ keeper. I will auction these shoes and donate the proceeds in support of this critical movement.
