Funds from JJWF helps sports program

After attending the JJ Watt Charity Classic this past April which raised over $300,000 to support the foundation’s mission of providing after-school opportunities for children in the community, Matagorda Elementary sixth grade teacher Moria Gesford was able to turn around and help her own school receive a grant from the foundation to fund new sports equipment.

Importance of after-school programs (or why we do what we do!)

“Kids that have an after-school program perform better in school because they have something to look forward to at the end of the day. They have a reason to have success. And that’s what we’re trying to do. We’re not only helping them on the field. We’re also trying to make sure they have something to look forward to and they have a reason to want to have success in the classroom.” ~ JJ Watt

JJ Watt: thank you for helping me be a game changer on and off the field!

“My goal has been and always will be to make you proud both on the field and off. I am very fortunate to have a platform through which I’m able to give back and help provide kids with an opportunity to work hard towards their dreams the same way I did. That wouldn’t be possible without the unbelievable amount of support from fans and generous donors. So to you, I say thank you. Together we will help change lives.” – J.J. Watt
