The Baltimore Ravens have a giveaway for Sunday’s season opener that will provide fans some knowledge about their mind and body.

Through a partnership with Boston-based biotech firm Orig3n, fans who attend the Sept. 17 game against the Cleveland Browns will get a free DNA test. The idea is to allow fans to learn more about their genetic makeup.

The sample tests four genes. The company’s DNA tests involve taking a swab of the cheek.

Results are sent back via app.

Additionally, the game has been dubbed “DNA Day” at M&T Bank Stadium, and it’s a milestone for the company.

“This is the first time that DNA tests are being distributed to fans at a football stadium and we believe this is an incredible opportunity to reach many people at once,” Robin Y. Smith, CEO of Orig3n, said in a statement.
