To help raise awareness for the charity, Jackson started Bo Bikes Bama. On Tuesday, April 24th through Saturday, April 28th, 2012, he will bike 300 miles through the tornado ravaged communities in hopes of securing donations.

Bo Knows Giving Back. See how Nike legend @bojackson is helping his native state of Alabama.
