Damian Lillard Returns to His High School To Give Back

adidas unveiled Damian Lillard's latest signature sneaker, the Adidas Dame 3. The sneakers feature a handful of references to Lillard's hometown of Oakland, so it was only right that he bring them back to city that raised him. Along with the Dame 3's, Lillard revisited Oakland High School to unveil improvements to the school for students. The improvements included a updated gym and weight room and a state-of-the-art recording studio for the music program. The efforts to give back to Oakland High School were made possible by Lillard’s All Rise Adidas campaign that aims to support communities through his interests in basketball and music.

"Grounded by the roots, hooked to the soil." Shout out to my @adidashoops family for helping me upgrade some of the facilities at Oakland High. I'm all about giving back to the people and places that helped mold me. Here's a look at the updated Oakland High gym. 🏀 #ALLRISE #ThisIsWhyWePlay
