Bo Knows Love.

Spread the word!

On April 24-28, 2012, sports legend Bo Jackson will bike 300 miles through the tornado ravaged communities of Alabama. Bo is riding his bike to raise $1 million for the Governor’s Emergency Relief Fund, which was established to help Alabamians with unmet recovery needs that unfolded in the wake of the deadly tornado outbreak across the state in April 2011.

“The reason for this ride is for state unity and to pay homage to the great Alabamians who lost their lives on April 27th, 2011. I am my brothers’ and sisters’ keeper.
~ Bo Jackson, Heisman trophy winner, All-Star athlete and proud Alabamian

In fact, over $1 billion is still needed for a full recovery. […]
