adidas Provides Legacy Girls and Boys Basketball Programs With Opportunity to Attend Game 3 of WNBA Finals
By definition, an Ace is a person who excels at a particular sport or activity. But, when it comes to SLAM 233 cover star Candace Parker, she’s an Ace who doesn’t just excel or dominate, she redefines possibilities.
Tonight, Parker and the Chicago Sky will take on the Phoenix Mercury for Game 3 of the WNBA Finals. Ahead of the matchup, adidas will be giving Chicago youth the opportunity to be attend the game at Wintrust Arena and witness all of the action.
The Three Stripes will be providing 150 tickets to adidas Legacy Girls and Boys basketball programs to tonight’s game. adidas Legacy is a high school basketball platform that aims to “unite, empower, and inspire the next generation of creators” from underrepresented communities. The program, which currently consists of 1,000 student athletes from 30 public high schools in three cities—Los Angeles, New York and Chicago—intends to “provide access to resources and opportunities” specifically through mentorship.
Just as Parker has served as an inspiration to many both on and off the court, the adidas Legacy program wants to help young hoopers around the country realize their own potential and open their eyes to new possibilities for their future.
In order to elevate the program, adidas has pledged $1 million to the Scholarship Fund for Legacy alumni. This initiative is part of an even larger $3.7 million commitment from Three Stripes to create scholarships across different programs for Black and LatinX youth over the next four years. adidas will also partner with the United Negro College Fund to manage the scholarships through 2024.
