Kevin Robinson and Junior Seau Launch “Shop with a Jock” For Under- Privileged Children
December 3, 2007 – Los Angeles, CA - “Shop with a Jock” is the brainchild of The Junior Seau Foundation. The foundation teams with Mervyns, corporate sponsors and individual donors for the Annual Shop with a Jock™. During the holiday season, SHOP gives 200 underprivileged children from Boys and Girls Clubs the opportunity to shop for gifts for their loved ones. To make this a night these children will never forget, each child SHOPS with elite athletes from several national teams and action sports heroes.
One standout athlete participating in this year’s event is Kevin Robinson. BMX Vert has always had its elite, and Robinson has always been in that elite crew. Now the top two spots in any major event are nearly a lock for Kevin Robinson. A veteran of Tony Hawk’s Boom Boom HuckJam tour, he’s been pulling in BMX Gold medals at the X Games, including the 2007 X Games BMX Big Air title, and has finally nailed the long-elusive Double Flair. With that chip off of his shoulder, he has been calling Camp Woodward his home base as he executes his program to revitalize BMX Vert.
Kevin Robinson’s passion for charity work is unmatched and a solid focus in his everyday life. “To be able to help give opportunities to kids that they wouldn't normally have is the greatest gift for me.” In addition to the shopping activities of the evening – the event will be followed by a festive dinner, a visit with Santa, and many fun-filled games and activities.
The Junior Seau Foundation was ranked the 13th largest Professional Athlete Foundation (based on assets) by the Wall Street Journal, April 28, 2007. Junior established the Junior Seau Foundation in 1992 to raise money and resources for programs that inspire young people to face life’s challenges with enthusiasm, hope and dignity.
