Proceeds benefit Change Our Future
Based on 28 offensive touchdowns, each worth $395.18
Please join me in supporting STEM and literacy education programs for underserved youth by pledging for every offensive touchdown the Bears and I score this season.
Each week during the regular season, the NFLPA #CommunityMVP program recognizes one player who has demonstrated a commitment to making a positive impact in his community. I am honored to have been chosen as the Week 2 NFLPA Community MVP, based on my efforts to help launch a STEM + Literacy program for students at Lincoln Elementary School in East Chicago, IN, where I distributed STEM themed books to nearly 100 students and worked on engineering projects with them. In recognition of this honor, the NFLPA has kicked of my Touchdowns for Kids campaign by making a $10,000 donation to my initiatives at Athletes for Charity. This is your chance to become a Community MVP with me by making your pledge. Your pledge can unlock cool rewards for you, as well as for the students at Lincoln Elementary!*
WHO YOU’LL BE SUPPORTING
Athletes for Charity, a project of United Charitable - a registered 501(c)(3), 509(a)(1) public charity (EIN# 20-4286082), is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to serve as a charitable initiative dedicated towards encouraging the giving of time, financial resources, and information to improve the collective lives of disadvantaged youth, advance the common good and support the nonprofit sectors that benefit the underprivileged, including foster care children.
I have signed on to serve as a STEM Ambassador with Athletes for Charity and will be visiting our students at Lincoln Elementary School in Indiana once a month. I also plan to partner with Chicago PD to visit schools with them throughout Chicago this year.
I am blessed to be in this position and just want to inspire them like other players did to inspire me to pursue my dreams when I was young. I’m excited to expose the kids to opportunities I didn’t have when I was younger.
