As reported by 620WTMJ and TODAY’S TMJ4′s Lance Allan, the Friday night lights at Pewaukee High this week will be shining on JJ Watt, as his alma mater honors the current NFL defensive end, and former Wisconsin badger, by retiring his high school jersey number. The game time is 7 pm with the jersey retirement ceremony taking place at halftime. Congratulations JJ on your success both on and off the field!
We didn’t raise the distance, but we raised the difference we’re making, with our most successful 5K Run/Walk yet! Click here to see WISN’s post on Waukesha Patch about the sold out JJ Watt Foundation 5K Run/Walk!
High-fives and a huge round of applause to everyone who came out for the third annual JJ Watt 5K Run/Walk this year, held at Waukesha County Technical College! We could not be more stoked to have JJ back in his hometown, and to see the support continue to grow from year to year. All of the funds raised will go towards after-school athletic programs both locally in Wisconsin, and down in Texas. You can find more coverage of the event here.
Thanks Yahoo! News for the awesome video on our sold out 5K Run/Walk! Because of all the incredible support for the event, we’re able to go the distance to help fund after-school athletic programs for children!
It was an all-star lineup of Houston Texans that turned out at Reliant Stadium in support of Impact a Hero’s ninth annual Hall of Fame dinner held on Sunday, May 19, 2013. The event recognized more than 50 wounded heroes and family members, and with big names such as Texans owner Bob McNair, JJ Watt, Chris Myers, and Matt Schaub, the fundraiser raised a record of more than $1.2 million.
