I like the product and I like the people, and I look forward to how the relationship expands in the months and years to come.”

  2. Thanks Joseph and Daren for the support. We are very excited to be working with BMR and all the great people involved. Reach out to your local captains for exclusive deals available through the partnership.

  3. Anything associated with BMR, I’m supporting. This is not only a movement for Black Men, but a way of life for us. Now how do we get a hold of Kevin Hart and partner with him since Nike has already jumped on his bandwagon?
