“Athletes Roll started as an unfortunate shirt choice. My mom came to my Power Soccer game wearing an Under Armour t-shirt with the slogan ‘Athletes Run’. She felt terrible because the athletes at this game cannot run – they roll! She got an idea for wheelchair athletes to have their own slogan. That night she sent Under Armour an email with pictures from the game suggesting they make ‘Athletes Roll’ shirts. The Under Armour Innovation Lab wrote back that while they could not create a new shirt to sell, they were touched by the story and wanted to do something for my team. A few months later, a box arrived with shirts bearing a custom-designed Athletes Roll for my team! . With these shirts we’re bringing back Athletes Roll and spreading the word about wheelchair athletes!” -Anthony Jennings
