Did you know since its establishment six years ago in August 2010, the Justin J. Watt Foundation has donated a total of $2,334,964.51 to after-school sports programs?! These donations have provided opportunities for middle-school aged children in the community to become involved in athletics so that they may learn the character traits of accountability, teamwork, leadership, work ethic, and perseverance, while in a safe and supervised environment with their peers.
“We get headlines, and we’re playing a game. These guys don’t get the headlines, but they’re the ones that save lives. Between them, and the police, and the military – I mean – those are people that are doing stuff that matters because they are true heroes…”- JJ Watt
