Earlier this month Nike N7 GM and N7 Fund Chairman Sam McCracken accepted a $20,000 donation from Delta and the Port of Portland. As a longtime supporter of Nike and many of our community efforts, Delta and Port of Portland were excited to learn about the work of Nike N7 and the N7 Fund to bring sport and all of its benefits to Native American and Aboriginal communities across North America. N7 is Nike’s commitment and mission to inspire and enable 2 million Native American and Aboriginal youth in North America to participate in sport and physical activity through community programs, the N7 collection and support of the N7 Fund. The N7 philosophy embraces the Native philosophy: “In every deliberation we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations.” To date, the N7 Fund has raised more than $4 million for organizations that provide sport and physical activity programs to Native youth.
