LeBron James is teaming up with the University of Akron and Chase Bank to give back to the kids.
James plans to give 1,000 inner city kids a free ride to college as long as they meet the requirements of his I Promise program!
“I think it’s probably one of the best things I’ve ever been apart of, this is very special to me. As a kid growing up in the inner city and as an African American kid, you don’t really think past high school because it’s not possible or your family can’t support you. For us to be able to do something like this … it means so much.”
Such a positive thing for these kids!! I love it!!
Very generous might I add, considering a year’s tuition at the University of Akron costs $9,500.
We salute you.
