1452564_671047206258979_1744775706_nThank you to everyone that came out during the Texans recent home game on Sunday, Dec 1, versus the Patriots, to support Texans for a Cause and The Justin J. Watt Foundation. In a period of about 2 hours, we raised just under $1,000 – AWESOME! A huge high-five to the Ol’Skools for setting up and to PitMaker for letting us take over their tailgate area. Thank You to all the SuperFans that came out, signed autographs and took pictures and for ensuring that our foundation can continue to support kids everywhere in their efforts to Dream Big and Work Hard!
