On April 6, adidas Canada and Rise Tribe, a non-profit aimed to power the next generation of Filipnx Canadians welcomed Jalen Green to Toronto with a Filipinx Night Market. Hosted by Rise Tribe founder Abby Albino, Abby said, "

“Partnering with a brand like adidas Canada and an icon like Jalen to curate an event that celebrates the Filipinx community and basketball is really a dream come true,” said Albino,Co-Founder of Rise Tribe. “Growing up, there wasn’t really anything or anyone celebrating our community in this way and this event was an opportunity for us to do so. For a brand like adidas Canada to shine a light on our community in this way means so much to me now and to the 11 yr old version of myself who would have never thought this was possible.”  

Watch the highlight video of the memorable event below by @alisontayagvideo:

Jalen Green participated in a Q&A where he gushed over his favorite filipino dishes (lumpia and tocino), his memories of his 2018 trip to the Philippines and his love for the culture. To end the Q&A Jalen surprised everyone with a $10K donation to Rise Tribe to support basketball programming for Fil-Can youth.

The night market featured Fil-Can small businesses/creatives, a floral bar by @paraluman.flora, a custom Calamansi Crunch ice cream flavour by @rurubaked, a sari sari by @auntiessupply, artwork/tshirt design by @okcaveat and sounds by @mikeroc @raestory.

Two nights later, Jalen Green and the Houston Rockets faced the Toronto Raptors and adidas Canada hosted 10 Fil-Can youth from @megacitybasketball. After the game, they were surprised with a meet and greet with Jalen and paired with a home team W.,. they had a more than memorable evening.

@rise_tribe was founded with the hope to power the next generation of Filipinx-Canadian leaders and shine a light on our community like never before. Growing up, it was rare to see Filipinx in sports, in media, in entrepreneurship, in creative fields etc and they wanted to change that narrative and show the next generation that they belonged in these spaces. Follow them on all social media for upcoming events and community news.
