L.A. Clippers forward Blake Griffin and 11-year old Children's Hospital of Los Angeles (CHLA) patient Justice Griffith have collaborated on a specially designed, custom pair of Jordan Super.Fly 5 shoes called the "Just 5". Griffin plans to wear the shoes during the Clippers March 29 game vs. Washington. All proceeds from the will be donated to CHLA as part of the annual Make March Matter ™ fundraising program.
"This is an amazing cause and I'm excited to be involved," Griffin said. "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."
The one-of-a-kind, original Jordan Super.Fly 5 shoes feature Justice's favorite number five, and are called the "Just 5" because five represents "power" in numerology.
"The Jordan Brand strives to inspire others both on and off-the-court. Through Michael's legacy, we know that defiance applies to all areas of life and begins with a frame of mind. Our hope is that Justice has been inspired by the creative design process and the opportunity to bring his design to life with Blake," said Larry Miller, President of Jordan Brand.
A sports fan who plays football and basketball, Justice was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) at the age of 10. While a patient at CHLA, he has received chemotherapy, radiation therapy and a bone marrow transplant.
"Children's Hospital Los Angeles is grateful to the Los Angeles Clippers for their partnership over the past few years. This year the collaboration with Blake Griffin and the Jordan Brand was especially meaningful as one of our patients had the opportunity to work one-on-one with Blake to design the basketball shoe of his dreams," said Dawn Wilcox, Vice President of Corporate Partnerships at CHLA. "We rely on the generosity of the community and we are appreciative of the team's commitment to support CHLA's patients and families."
All proceeds from the auction of the five-time NBA All-Star All-Star's shoes will go directly to CHLA. Make March Matter is an annual fundraising program with a goal of raising $1 million during the month of March to support children's health in Los Angeles and surrounding communities.
Clippers fans can donate to Make March Matter by visiting: www.chla.org/clippers or www.MakeMarchMatter.org.
