Flight Club is partnering with Sue Bird of the Seattle Storm and Diana Taurasi of the Phoenix Mercury to auction off their game-worn and signed Nike Kyrie 6 and LeBron 17, respectively, to support the movement combating police brutality against Black women.
The two WNBA athletes and UCONN alums will auction off their sneakers on Flight Club’s Instagram to raise funds and awareness of the movement, with 100% of the proceeds going to the Breonna Taylor Foundation. More than four months have gone by without the arrest of the officers involved in the killing of Breonna Taylor in Louisville, KY. Each shoe up for auction bears the names of Black women who have lost their lives at the hands of police brutality.
The auction will run from August 17th at 11AM ET to August 21st at 11AM ET. All bids must take place in the comments of the dedicated grid posts. Flight Club will announce the winner on their Instagram Story on Saturday, August 22nd at 11AM ET.
