Basketball Legend & APB Speaker Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Donates Goggles to Healthcare Workers Amid COVID-19 Crisis
08 Apr 2020
APB speaker Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is the NBA’s all-time leading scorer, a six-time NBA champion and the league’s only six-time MVP. However, Abdul-Jabbar is not just a basketball legend, he is also a humanitarian, helping others during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that Abdul-Jabbar stopped by Scripps Health in San Diego, CA and donated 900 pairs of reusable safety goggles to healthcare workers. Abdul-Jabbar wore goggles so often while he was on the basketball court that they became his trademark, which makes this donation his newest trademark.
A global icon that changed the game of basketball, Kareem is a Presidential Medal of Freedom Winner who now works to bring innovative educational opportunities to underserved communities. Also one of our most sought-after speakers, he offers unparalleled insights into some of the most socially relevant and politically controversial topics facing our nation today.
