Four-time World Champion skier Bode Miller recently launched the new Hublot limited edition Bode Bang watch with a celebrity tennis match at Sutton East Tennis Club in New York City. The participants gathered to support Bode’s relationship with the Harlem Junior Tennis and Education Program. Following the Celebrity Challenge, Bode led a basic tennis clinic with 50+ kids and then, along with Hublot, (on behalf of the Turtle Ridge Foundation) donated $10,000 to the organization.
Best known for his skill on the slopes, Bode also knows his way around a tennis court. “My family played a lot when I was growing up. If I wasn’t skiing professionally I think I’d be playing tennis.” Bode Miller and his family started The Turtle Ridge Foundation in 2005. It is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting health, diversity, and sustainable living through sports. In February 2009, Bode joined forces with Hublot to collaborate on design and development of the new Hublot Bode Bang limited edition watch. A portion of sales from the watch will go to the Turtle Ridge Foundation.
