"As a child growing up in rural Alabama, I was not exposed to many of the mentorship, athletic and educational programs that are available in larger cities," Howard explained. "As he got more involved with sports, his access to life-changing programs and initiatives increased. He was able to engage in opportunities that would enable me to succeed. We want to offer the same type of opportunities to other deserving children. We're excited to partner with Pledge It and launch the Catches for Kids campaign to give fans the opportunity to join us in giving back." says OJ's mother Lamesa Howard.
As part of his Catches for Kids, Howard will be providing exclusive incentives to pledgers, including a signed jersey, an office lunch with OJ and the chance to win a personal tour of AdventHealth Training Center.
