Seventeen year NFL veteran and two-time Super Bowl Champion Ricky Proehl and his wife Kelly are on a mission to help at-risk youth achieve their sports dreams. Their foundation was started in 1995 and they've raised more than $1.5 million to help kids and their families afford academic and sports programs.
For Ricky and Kelly this is more than just sports, it's about building character and creating a safe environment for the kids. You can see what their foundation is all about tonight at "The Great Celebration" event. It is from 6-9pm at Proehlific Park in Greensboro. They will be there come rain or shine and suggest you bring a blanket and chairs. There will be activities for the whole family including games, crafts, live worship music, and free Chick-Fil-A. They're asking for a $5 donation that benefits The Ricky Proehl P.O.W.E.R. Of Play Foundation and Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
