UA Heisman winner launches "I Still Roll"

TUSCALOOSA - AL -

Former Crimson Tide All-American and Heisman Trophy winner, Mark Ingram, will return to Tuscaloosa this weekend to launch his initiative at Innisfree.  Ingram's initiative is called "I Still Roll."  The initiative is developing a partnership with United Way of West Alabama to provide fundraising support to develop community initiatives for youth such as fitness and wellness events; awareness and education on managing asthma and diabetes; and support for activities for children of incarcerated parents.

"The reason we developed the ‘I Still Roll!' initiative is to share my message that I was challenged with many obstacles such as having asthma at the age of six," said Ingram.  "My story may inspire someone facing the kinds of challenges I had.  I want to inspire young people to know there is always a way to reach your dreams.  There are many young people facing health and economic challenges." 

Innisfree's Downtown Tuscaloosa location will have "I Still Roll!" kiosks selling T-shirts from noon to 8:00 p.m. Friday and 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Saturday.  Ingram will greet fans at Innisfree from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Friday and 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Saturday before the A-Day Game.  T-shirts are also available online at rtgpromotions.com.
