ROCHESTER, Minn.- A billboard along a popular stretch of road in Rochester is gaining a lot of attention for its inspirational message.
Crews installed the billboard Monday showing Minnesota Lynx star Maya Moore recreating Michael Jordan's famous wing pose.
The power of social media is the only reason this sign is in Rochester.
It was originally in the Twin Cities but after a while was take down.
Realtor Kris Lindahl tells KIMT people began tagging him in social media posts, asking him to save the motivational sign.
Lindahl has over 150 billboards signs between the Twin Cities and Rochester.
He tells us it was a no-brainer to resurrect it in hopes that little girls looking at the sign will feel empowered.

“I have an 8 year-old-daughter, and I think it's important. Especially, to see that female leadership,” said Lindahl.

Lindahl says the billboard will be up for one month.
