Last week, Mercedes-Benz co-hosted “Camp MBUSA” with Atlanta Falcons running back Bijan Robinson at their company headquarters. The event was done to help young children learn about safety and injury prevention.
Robinson, who is a Mercedes-Benz brand ambassador joined children from the YMCA of Metro Atlanta. The event, which took place over a full day provided attendees with a series of fun field day activities and interactive safety education stations. Safe Kids Worldwide assisted with teaching the youth about the importance of safety during the summer.
“It was an incredible opportunity to work alongside Mercedes-Benz, Safe Kids Worldwide, and YMCA of Metro Atlanta to help raise awareness about summer safety and spend time with these kids. As a new Atlantan, giving back to the community, and especially to Atlanta youth, has been such a fulfilling experience – I can’t wait to see how far these kids go in the future,” Robinson said in a written statement.

Along with Robinson, there were more than 50 MBUSA employee volunteers who came through to help make the program a success. The event was one part of Mercedes-Benz’s corporate social responsibility initiative, Driving Your Future, which aims to empower the next generation.
Robinson told The Atlanta Tribune how he wants this event to impact people. “I want this to have the biggest impact… I don’t want this just to affect here but the whole world eventually.”
The Atlanta Falcons player also wants the experience and partnership with Mercedes-Benz to assist in the goals he has with his own organization, The Bijan Robinson Foundation.
