On Friday, October 10, 2014, Philadelphia’s Eagle Offensive Lineman Todd Herremans hosted an event the Todd Herremans Foundation. This event was held at Fellow Eagle’s Player Brent Celek’s restaurant, Prime Stache.
Patrons could order from the standard menu of American fare, with 50% of all proceeds going directly to the Foundation. Notable players in attendance were: Todd Herremans, Brent Celek, Jeremy Maclin and Matt Barkley.
I had a chance to interview Todd to find out more about his foundation. When asked what charities and causes are close to his heart he mentioned the Magee Rehabilitation, which specializes in head trauma; being a professional football player this resonates with him daily. He also mentioned cancer charities and charities with a focus on Alzheimer’s, because his grandparents suffered with both.
The Herremans Foundation’s mission is to help where help is needed by providing resources for various charitable organizations, to effect positive change in our communities.
