Tackle Sickle Cell

New Brunswick, New Jersey, United States
Email   Web  

“Tackle Sickle Cell” is a campaign that aims to educate the public, increase blood donations, and raise money & awareness for the fight against sickle cell disease. This campaign is spearheaded by NFL stars & twin brothers, Jason & Devin McCourty. Jason & Devin McCourty are twin brothers, who were football standouts at Rutgers University and are both currently starting defensive backs in the NFL. Devin plays for the New England Patriots while Jason plays for the Tennessee Titans. Each brother has found individual success in the NFL. Jason led all NFL cornerbacks in tackles this past season with the Titans, while Devin made the Pro Bowl as a rookie in 2011 and played in the Super Bowl last year with the Patriots.

They’ve done everything together their entire lives, so its no surprise that they’ve joined forces with their charitable efforts. Jason & Devin have seen first hand the devastating effects of Sickle Cell on family members and they are choosing to use their platform to help families in similar situations. The twins sought to partner with a non-profit that supports children and families battling Sickle Cell and were thrilled to find Embrace Kids Foundation.
