After having a fairytale wedding, newlyweds Jay “Jeezy” Jenkins (recording artist, entrepreneur & philanthropist) & Jeannie Mai-Jenkins (Emmy Award winning co-host of The Real) partnered with The Tony Robbins Foundation alongside Jeezy’s Street Dreamz Foundation to gift over 500 bicycles to children and young adults in Atlanta. Taking place at the historic Clark Atlanta University, the giveaway was preceded by a rally which included motivational speeches from Jeezy as well as Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance-Bottoms.

Giving back to the community that raised Jeezy has always been a priority to him and the choice to give away bicycles was a personal one. “The only time I felt free was when I was in motion. That’s your chance to see where you want to go in life because if you stay still, that’s where you’ll stay.” Jeezy continues “If you’ve got a vision you can achieve it, just like you can ride from one street to the next, you can do that with life, too!”

In addition to Keisha Lance-Bottoms, the community giveaway was also attended by President of CAU Dr. George French, Hank Stewart, Senator Tonya Anderson, Bernice King, Karyn Greer, Xernona Clayton, City Councilmen Andre Dickens, Ambassador Andrew Young & more.
