Foundation Promotes Fitness at NFL Yet Football Clinic; Character at NFL Pulse Awards

DALLAS – The goal of the Chris Draft Family Foundation (CDFF) is to empower families all across America to lead happier and healthier lives. CDFF takes a multi-faceted approach to achieving this goal, and the foundation’s themes can be seen all over Dallas, Texas, for Super Bowl week.

Education was the focus early in the week when CDFF joined the NFL Players’ Association to donate copies of Chris Draft’s children’s book “Do You Want to Play Catch?”, fitness will be an added component when Draft represents CDFF at the Giving Youth Football Clinic and NFL Youth Education Town (YET) event.

Draft will join 100 Dallas-area youth at the University of Texas Arlington for a football clinic, where he will lead the youth through various fitness-related football drills. The event will conclude with a press conference discussing the importance of NFL Youth Education Towns, which will include NFL Commissioner Roger Goddell and Dallas Cowboys’ Owner Jerry Jones.

Thursday night, the Character Team will receive the focus as CDFF heads to the Pulse Awards Ceremony at the Hyatt Regency in Dallas. The Pulse Awards honor NFL Players for their commitment both on and off the field. During the event, CBS Football analyst James Brown will hand out his annual J.B. Awards, honoring players for their commitment to their communities. Draft is a two-time J.B. Award recipient.

“I am extremely excited to be part of the Dallas NFL Youth Education Town dedication, having served on the board of the Atlanta NFL YET for three years,” Draft said. “It is a great opportunity to share the core values of the NFL (character, education, health/fitness, service) with the young men and women of the Dallas community.”
