2021 Heroes on the Road

Posted on


You could usually find my son Chris and I at many games throughout the football season with many of our Gridiron Heroes joining us as part of our Annual “Heroes on The Road” campaign. This year to say the least has been a little different.

However, we cannot forget last year there were 4 spinal injuries in Texas.

With all that is going on with COVID 19, many of our families can relate to what it is like to have their son fight to get off a ventilator, not being able to shake hands or hug someone, having a family member lose a job, feeling the isolation away from the game and friends, and understanding the financial hard- ships. The saying “we are all in this together” has a little more meaning for our families.

Fundraising has just about come to a standstill since January 2020.

In the time of COVID 19, We have help with medical supplies such as gloves, wipes, hand sanitizer. We also help provide a roll in shower wheelchair and hospital bed. Over the previous 15 years we have been able to donate 15 wheelchair accessible Vans.

We now serve over 39 families from Texas alone.

Thank you in advance for your support of our injured athletes. Sincerely,

Eddie Canales
