Brothers Big Sisters of Miami and Year Up came together in support of former NFL Linebacker, Darrin Smith’s, The Million Book Read international literacy pledge campaign at a Super Bowl event designed to motivate adults to invest time in reading with children on Thursday, January 30, 2020. Smith’s Project 59 Race for Reading Foundation, which helps children discover their potential and power through reading, established The Million Book Read international literacy campaign as a way to hold adults accountable through a pledge to make reading a necessary activity for all children.
Known as “Mr. Triple Double”, Darren Smith is the only player in the history of the NFL to have earned two Super Bowl Rings, two NCAA National Championships and an MBA.
