The video shows the firefighters receiving the gift which was in partnership with Under Armour and the First Responders Children’s Foundation, a New York nonprofit that provides financial support for children and families of first responders, reports nj.com.
In the video, Jillian Crane, president of the foundation, can be seen reading a letter from Dwayne Johnson to the firefighters.
“To the baddass firefighters at the Ridgefield Fire Department Engine number two, thank you,” Crane read aloud.
“During these tough times, you have protected your families, our loved ones, and our communities. As a small mahalo, from myself and Under Armour, here’s my newly released Project Rock PR3s. Hopefully, these will help the hardest workers in the room kick ass even more. Gratitude and respect, Dwayne Johnson.”
The news comes just days after Dwayne Johnson revealed to fans that he and his family had tested positive for COVID-19.
