Mo’ne Davis, the famous 13-year-old little league pitcher that covered Sports Illustrated, is teaming up with shoe brand M4D3 to design a line of sneakers, which will give 15 percent of its proceeds to benefit impoverished girls around the globe.
The sneaker company is collaborating with the Because I’m A Girl movement for the shoe, which will match the stitching of a baseball. Mo’ne told the press:
“I never thought at the age of 13 I’d be a role model, but having young girls look up to me is pretty cool,” Davis said. “If I can inspire them to reach their goals, that would be even cooler. Designing shoes with M4D3 is exciting and I wanted them to support Because I am a Girl to help girls and give them a chance at a better future.”
Also the Disney Channel says they are underway on the biographical film, titled “Throw Like Mo.” It will tell the story of the 13-year-old who last summer made history as the first girl to pitch a shutout in the Little League World Series.
