NFL players like Travis Kelce and Jameis Winston and celebrities like Tracy Morgan and T-Pain are teaming up with Walk Again Athletic Warriors to sell custom shoes made for Gales to raise $500,000 for an adaptive home for Gales.
All the profits from the shoe sales go directly to Gales and his recovery, according to Bleacher Report.
In 2015, Gales was paralyzed during a football game at the University of Georgia. Since the injury, Gales has worked non-stop to recover with hopes of walking again.
As of Wednesday, $125,000 of the initial goal of $500,000 had been reached.
Donations are accepted on Walk Again Athletic Warrior’s official website.
