Respect. Pass It On.
The Portland Trail Blazers believe in playing for something bigger than ourselves. Nothing is more important to us than the health and well-being of all people. We are dedicated to our ongoing efforts to make it better for kids and their families throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington. We celebrate the rich and ever changing diversity represented here in the Northwest and strive to do our best to respectfully and responsibly honor all people in everything we do.
The best part of our community charge to make it better is it is not only a challenge, it invites others to join in. Join us (Damian, the Trail Blazers, Les Schwab & adidas) and do your part to make it better. We look to you, the leaders of tomorrow, to show us, your friends, your family and the world, that you understand the role you play to show respect for yourself and for all others.
Be a leader in your community and inspire others to follow. Join us.
Take the pledge. It's simple. Demonstrate Respect… and Pass it on.
Together we can and we will… make it better.
