“I’m so excited to partner with Race to Erase MS for my first annual Celebrity Basketball Game,” said Jordan Bell. “Being able to combine my love for basketball with supporting a cause that is near and dear to my heart means a lot to me and my family. I encourage the Long Beach community and surrounding areas to come out and bring the family to support the cause!”
