Oakland Raiders players including defensive back TJ Carrie, guard Austin Howard and tight end Brian Leonhardt as well as former Raider Sam Williams teamed up with the Clorox Company to put on a community event for students at Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School in Oakland.

The group first spoke to the student at an assembly about the importance of staying healthy, keeping their environment clean during the flu season and saying “Boo to the Flu” in conjunction with the Clorox Clean Classrooms community initiative.

 

The players then led the over 200 students through football drills outside as part of a Gatorade Junior Training Camp.

“This has been an exciting day for the entire West Oakland community and Martin Luther King students,” the school’s principal Roma Groves told raiders.com. “We are glad that we are able to meet the Raiders and this is something that the kids can aspire to be when they grow up. It’s part of our college and career readiness program that the superintendent has initiated at all the schools, making sure we introduce kids to real, live careers and things they can aspire to be.”

One of The Clorox Company’s programs is called The Clorox Clean Club. “[The Clorox Clean Club] means washing their hands, coughing in their elbow as well as always sneezing into a tissue, in order to keep them and all of their classmates healthy,” Debra Tracey, Corporate Sports Marketing – Management & Operations at The Clorox Company, told raiders.com.
