Cornerback Jason McCourty honored the Embrace Kids Foundation this year. It’s an organization dedicated to helping individuals facing various health issues. Their goal is to ease some of the burdens which accompany illness such as emotional and financial hardships. One of the illnesses they support is sickle cell anemia.
Derek Rivers, another Patriot player, chose to raise awareness for Duchenne muscular dystrophy this year. Specifically, his cleats represented the Jar of Hope. The organization raises money which goes toward research for the condition.
