Twin brothers and NFL defensive backs, Jason & Devin McCourty are continuing their partnership with Embrace Kids Foundation on a campaign against sickle cell disease. The campaign, entitled “Tackle Sickle Cell” enters its third year in 2015 and aims to educate the public, increase blood donors, and raise money and awareness for the fight against sickle cell disease.
The Twins and Embrace Kids are looking to build off the momentum gained in 2014 where they held multiple events and blood drives throughout New Jersey and even expanded the campaign’s footprint to the home cities of their respective NFL clubs, Boston, Massachusetts and Nashville, Tennessee. In addition, Jason and Devin were recently recognized for their work on and off the field as they were both named the Walter Payton Man of the Year by, the Titans and Patriots!
On Saturday, February 21st The McCourty Twins will host their 2nd annual Tackle Sickle Cell Casino Night at Brother Jimmy’s Restaurant in New Brunswick, NJ. Visit www.TackleSickleCell.org to get involved with the “Tackle Sickle Cell” campaign or register directly for the event at: Casino Night.
