The Cleveland Cavaliers will buy an 8-foot-tall easter carving of a woman on the field of the Ohio State University’s football stadium on Wednesday.
The sculpture will be displayed on the first-year team’s sidelines at the beginning of training camp.
It’s part of a $10,000-per-month program that the team says it will use to raise awareness about mental health.
The Cleveland Cavaliers, whose name is derived from the words “Cleveland,” will use the money to help fund mental health programs.
It will also help cover the cost of the installation.
A Cleveland native, Lea has spent the past four years in a rehabilitation facility, where she has been working on her recovery.
She will be able to take part in practice and team events.
