Lamar Jackson’s autograph signing events around the Louisville area this month have now generated a total of $29,000 worth of charitable donations, according to a Planet Fitness release Monday.
Over the past two weekends, Jackson has signed autographs at five Planet Fitness clubs in Louisville, Elizabethtown, and New Albany. Visitors — totaling more than 3,000 over five events, according to Planet Fitness — could obtain an autograph with a gym membership or a $25 donation to charity.
Four signing events benefited Blessings in a Backpack, totaling $25,000. Another bestowed Mission Hope for Kids with a $4,000 donation.
“These past two weekends have been about meeting fans and raising money for two great charities who help kids and families,” Jackson said in the release. “Thank you to everyone who came out and stood in line. You’ve been a big part of my success and I appreciate the support.”
