Jayson Tatum is giving Duke basketball fans the opportunity to win a VIP day with him thanks to him joining the “All-In Challenge.”

One of the very few positives that have come from COVID-19 has been professional athletes and organizations coming together to help all those in need and to support the front line health care workers who are putting their lives on the line to help others.

Another group has emerged and created a challenge, the “All-In Challenge” organized by Michael Rubin, most notably known for being the co-owner of the Philadelphia 76ers and New Jersey Devils, as well as a founder of Fanatics.
