Blake Griffin recently partnered up with 11-year old Justice Griffith to customize a special edition pair of the Super.Fly 5 which Blake will wear on-court and auction off as part of the Blake Kicks Cancer initiative.
When Justice was 10 he was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and has undergone chemotherapy, radiation therapy and a bone marrow transplant, though he still continues to play his favorite sports, football and basketball.
Here's what Blake said about the "Just 5" Super.Fly 5s that he and Justice designed.
“This is an amazing cause and I’m excited to be involved.”
“I am lucky for the opportunity to get to know Justice and it was a lot of fun to work with him. He knew exactly what he wanted the ‘Just 5’ to look like, and I can’t wait to show it off on the court and help raise money to benefit CHLA patients like Justice who need help.”
Blake will be lacing up the special sneakers tonight as the Clippers play host to the Washington Wizards.
The auction is already live and will stay open until April 13th with all of the #BlakeKicksCancer proceeds going to Children's Hospital Los Angeles. The Clippers have also pledged to match donations up to $25,000.
