Barcelona, August 28th 2014.- The Gasol brothers have decided to auction the tennis shoes they will use in the Spanish National Team games for 2014 Basketball World Championship.
The auction will take place on eBay. People will be able to bid on the shoes from September 8th, until September 17th, 2014. The funds from the auction will go entirely to the Foundation programs, which focus on promoting active and healthy habits among at risk kids and teenagers.
‘We have a dream this year: winning the World Championship. And we also want to help other kids to fulfill their dream’, said Pau when talking about the initiative. Marc has said, ‘We hope to do great things in this World Championship and we would also like to give opportunities to many kids through the auction of our sport shoes’.
During the World Championship, and through social media, we will encourage basketball fans as well as followers of Marc and Pau to spread the word and collaborate in this initiative by using the hashtag #Gasol4kids.
Marc and Pau have a strong commitment to children and through their Foundation want to help kids have the opportunity to grow up and develop in a healthy way. For more work about the Gasol Foundation’s work, visit www.gasolfoundation.org.
On September 8th we will provide more information on how to bid for Pau and Marc’s shoes.
