Summer Hustle
Summer is here and the activities for our I PROMISE students and families are in full swing! From entering a new competition to accepting an experience in a new place, it all starts with keeping promises. 
In Akron, the All-American Soap Box Derby is a staple. For I PROMISE student James and his family, it’s now a promise kept. Over the weekend, IPS 6th grader James jumped into his white soap box – the same one once used by Cleveland Cavalier Larry Nance – now emblazoned with IPS RACING on the front. It was a moment years in the making, as he had promised his father he’d enter the race before he passed. As James and his red helmet raced down the lane, with his family and Team LJFF cheering him on, it was a special moment we’ll never forget. We can’t wait to see James in the derby again next year with his own custom soap box!
Making a promise takes courage and bravery. Keeping one takes all that and more. We are so excited to be alongside our students as they continue to try new things, embrace new adventures, and push themselves further than ever. 
At the I PROMISE Institute, many promises were fulfilled when 80 of our high school I PROMISE students showed up with suitcases in hand after accepting the invitation to a week-long camp at Kent State University. Now on campus, our high schoolers will experience college life first-hand and learn what it takes to be successful there. To enhance the connection to our students, some of our I PROMISE Network students and members of Team LJFF are serving as camp counselors. We hope this camp helps prepare them for their futures and ease them into their next chapter.
With a promise to never forget where he came from, LeBron makes it a priority to bring big moments to his kids in Akron. The latest manifestation of this was the Hustle premiere in Akron that offered our oldest I PROMISE Network college and high school students the opportunity to screen The SpringHill Company and Netflix film produced by LeBron and Maverick before it was available to the world. Bringing our kids together for these Hollywood moments in Akron is something the Foundation will continue to bring to life.

Summer is just getting started!
