Shaquille O’Neal

Sports Analyst
Newark, NJ

Known for putting his all into everything he does, Shaq's fun-loving, down-to-earth energy comes through whether he's stepping onto a court, onto the mic, or onto the pop-culture stage. Icy Hot® and Shaq – two icons – have partnered together for 20 years to help people rise from pain and communities rise up to get back in the game.

In 2021, the Shaquille O'Neal Foundation and Icy Hot created the "Comebaq Courts" initiative, which aims to refurbish basketball courts in underserved areas and provide youth programs with the necessary resources to thrive. The initiative was inspired by Shaq's own experiences growing up playing basketball on poorly maintained courts and his desire to give back to communities that may not have access to quality facilities. Through the Comebaq Courts program, Shaq and Icy Hot hope to inspire and empower young people to pursue their dreams both on and off the court.

Darren Waller

Football Player
Las Vegas, NV

Darren, Pro-Bowl tight end, knows a thing or two about finding the strength to overcome obstacles and injuries. It's equipped him to tackle whatever life throws his way, whether it’s on the field or in the community. Giving by nature, his work ethic and ability to encourage others to rise up and be the best version of themselves is truly inspiring.

Darren Waller teamed up with IH to host the "Recover like a PRO" event, which provided editors with a unique opportunity to experience a day in the life of a PRO player's post-game recovery routine. Waller demonstrated various recovery techniques and shared his secrets for maintaining physical and mental well-being during the grueling football season.

In addition to this event, we wish Darren all the best in his transition to New York. Undoubtedly, he will continue to make a significant impact on and off the field.
