Shawty Lo Teams With Atlanta Falcons To Give Children Bikes
Atlanta rapper Shawty Lo has teamed with Atlanta Falcon’s Defensive End Chauncey Davis to giveaway bikes this holiday season.
Davis’ Bike For Life initiative encourages young children to remain physically fit and fight obesity through exercise and education.
Shawty Lo will be joined by various Atlanta Falcons players, sponsors of the event and the 92 children who will be the recipients of the bikes, on Tuesday (December 22).
“I’m more than happy to donate bikes for Chauncey Davis’ Bike For Life initiative as a way to help kids stay active and healthy,” Shawty Lo said. “As a diabetic myself, I appreciate all of Chauncey’s efforts in the community to promote diabetes awareness. I also understand the importance of educating young people early on and encouraging them to get the proper exercise to maintain a healthy weight.”
The event is even more personal for the rapper, as his mother, father and grandmother suffered from diabetes and had to continuously monitor their weight.
“Anything I can do to help fight this disease, I am more than willing to lend my time and resources,” Shawty Lo said.
The Bike For Life giveaway takes place December 22nd at 2:00pm at the Manuel Maloof Auditorium in Decatur, Georgia.
