Miami Heat all-star center Bam Adebayo is currently battling the LA Lakers in the NBA finals, but he’s still finding time to give back to the community.
This week, Bam is hosting his 2nd annual Back to School drive but due to the Coronavirus pandemic, it will be held virtually this year.
Now through Sunday, Adebayo is inviting fans to play against him in a virtual game of HORSE on HorseLegends.org to raise awareness for the drive. With every user that beats him in the game, Adebayo along with his partners SnapCrack and Champs Sports, will donate a backpack (up to 1000 individual donations) on their behalf to students from underprivileged areas in the North Carolina and Miami area.
