The Indianapolis Colts and their star quarterback Andrew Luck have partnered with the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis for their recently unveiled $35 million “Sports Legend Experience” on behalf of Riley Children’s Health.

Most notably, Luck will serve as the project’s spokesperson, which is set to officially open to the public in the Spring of 2018.

The Colts quarterback–freshly turned spokesperson has been significantly involved with the announced Sports Legend Experience:

"“Yeah, we’ve been a part of the planning and design process with some of the architects and to dinners and luncheons with some of the donors to try and help out and encourage folks to take part and regular e-mail correspondence with the folks of the museum,” said Luck during the announcement press conference on Wednesday."

The project is the museum’s largest expansion in 40 years and will promote childhood health, fitness, and well being by encouraging physical activity to combat childhood obesity. Additionally, the expansion will help to honor local sports legends and their athletic teams respectively.

Specifically, the new sports zone will feature interactive exhibits with basketball, football, soccer, hockey, and track, etc., as the Sports Legend Experience has partnered with the likes of the Indiana Pacers and Fever, Indianapolis Colts, Indy Fuel, and Indianapolis Motor Speedway among others:

However, Luck said that his role with the project will be ongoing even after the inaugural announcement:

"“Yeah, continue to be involved with the planning and design process,” replied Luck when asked about his long-term role. “Help promote it. Help get kids out. I’m sure there will be fun, interesting ways to incorporate what I do with Riley into this Sports Legends Experience.”"

Either way, it’s a classy gesture by both the Colts and Luck–speaking to their high character, as it’s for a great cause and should help to improve the overall health of the future of America: children.
