Colts linebacker and defensive captain Gary Bracket hosted his annual IMPACT Foundation fundraiser. According to the foundation’s website, its purposes is to promote health, to advance education, and to relieve the poor, distressed and underprivileged by providing resources and opportunities to children, including children who are mentally challenged, physically challenged, socially disadvantaged, or economically disadvantaged.
All too often as fans we focus on the worst things that our athletes do. Things like the Pacers' brawl in Detroit do nothing but make us fans sick of over-paid cry babies.We generally only hear good things about athletes when something really bad happens, such as Hurricane Katrina. This isn't always the case, but it happens a lot more than we'd like.
However, here's an article not only about athletes doing some good, but it's our very own players doing it. Gary Brackett has been a huge part of making contributions to this community, and outside of Manning, is probably the most visible charity driving player on the team.
I just want to say that I'm very proud of our players and it's great to see some quality role models who have not forgotten their roots. Having been a part of a charity car show for Peyton Manning's Hospital for Children and working at Riley Children Hospital, it's always a great thing to see our superstars making time for those less fortunate.
I just really wanted to take a small minute to give a shout out to all the players who are both a part of this and supported it. Thanks guys, you are appreciated!
