LeBron James’ I Promise School opens in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, today. The school, built in partnership with the LeBron James Family Foundation and Akron Public Schools, will serve Akron’s most at-risk youth to help give them the tools to have a successful future.
James tweeted about the opening, calling it one of the “greatest moments” of his life.
1. Every kid at the school gets a free bicycle and helmet, because LeBron says his own childhood bike helped him get out of dangerous neighborhoods and explore his city as a kid.
