Ademola Okulaja is a warrior. Due to his tremendous will, his unconditional hustle on the court and his big heart team germany’s power forward has earned that nickname over the years. Now the warrior finds himself fighting the battle of his life against the cancer doctors diagnosed in July of 2008. That’s why k1x has launched a charity project supporting the first testimonial in franchise history IN HIS fight against the cancer.
“The warior will be back” is the message proclaimed on 513 limited tees, available exclusively at Ballerz World (Bamberg) and on www.kickz.com. The imprint shows Okulajas’s trademark glare, that embodies k1x’s claim “play hard – don’t embarrass our products” to perfection. The edition volume of 513 tees is a tribute to Okulajas’ jersey numbers for the german national team (No. 5) and his current team (Brose Baskets Bamberg), as well as his alma matter North Carolina (No. 13). The Warrior-Tee costs € 20,- of which every cent will go into “KINDerLEBEN e.V.”, a cancer charity organisation for kids, Ademola Okulaja specifically chose for this cause. (for more info log on to: www.verein-tagesklinik.de).
Team k1x wishes Ademola all the best – and we are sure that the Warrior will be back!
