WASHINGTON (AP) — You can own a pair of shoes worn in a game by Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry — and support a cause, to boot.
The inspiration for the shoe I’ll be playing in today is every boy and young man of color in this country that need to know they matter - to their communities, their country, to me. Four years ago this week, the @mbk_alliance was created to reduce barriers and expand opportunity so nothing stands in the way of everyone achieving their biggest dreams. I've been proud to be part of that mission from day one, and I'll never stop being my brothers' keeper. I will auction these shoes and donate the proceeds in support of this critical movement.

Curry posted on Instagram that he'll be auctioning off the sneakers he wore in Golden State's game at the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night to raise money for My Brother's Keeper Alliance.
He says the effort "was created to reduce barriers and expand opportunity" in support of "young men and boys of color in their pursuit of achievement and higher success in life."
