Ben Roethlisberger wishes
NFL Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger made a big donation to Make-A-Wish Foundation, granting seven wishes to children in need. The quarterback is a big fan of the foundation, and his donation is the latest in a long line of good deeds. Ben Roethlisberger made a wish come true for a little boy named Anthony Cook. Having received money from the tooth fairy and a good report card, Anthony Cook was able to have his dream come true. Roethlisberger met with the boy and granted his wish.
On the day after the game, Roethlisberger took a knee and made a special wish. Roethlisberger, who announced his retirement from football earlier this month, said he would make a wish on his final day in the NFL. Although it is not clear if Roethlisberger will continue playing football after his retirement from the NFL, it seems likely that he will be around for a while.
As a tribute to his former colleague Garrett King, Big Ben Roethlisberger gave the grieving football player a surprise. He had long wished for new uniforms for the team. He didn’t know Ben would be there when he surprised his team with the announcement. He showed the players the new uniforms on mannequins. It was a touching gesture that touched the hearts and souls of his team.
Roethlisberger spoke to fans as he made his way to Heinz Field. His final game in Pittsburgh will be his last. Antonio Brown wished Roethlisberger the best of luck and promised that his career is not over yet. He praised Roethlisberger’s competitive drive and honed his position as one of the best quarterbacks ever.
Donate to Make-A Wish
The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback, Jared Cook, has donated $25,000 to Make-A-Wish to children. This is one of many charities he supports. The foundation is responsible for helping seven children with life-threatening medical conditions get the wishes they deserve. Roethlisberger presented the check to Anthony Cook, a young man who is a big fan of the NFL quarterback. Cook, now 16 years old, fulfilled his wish by donating money from his tooth fairy and a good report card.
In honor of the new Nike uniforms, Ben Roethlisberger and his Pittsburgh Steelers teammates visited Stage AE, a building near Heinz Field. The players, presumably, thought the trip was a team building exercise. However, they were all agog at the reveal, especially the new uniforms, which the team has been working on for months. But none of them knew that the mighty Ben Roethlisberger was at the facility with them! Ben Roethlisberger was recently diagnosed with cancer and had been granted his wish through Make-A-Wish PaWV.
In addition to supporting police departments around the country, the foundation also supports the Make-A-Wish foundation. The foundation has awarded $2.2 million in grants since 2007. The former Deadspin writer rehashed old strikes against the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback, and he should have toned down the vitriol. Roethlisberger was sitting alone on the bench last year after the Browns’ playoff loss. This year, he has greeted his wife and children and joined them in the tunnel.
Supports police and fire departments
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will make a wish to support police and fire departments in cities that need them most. The ex-NFL player has supported law enforcement and contributed to the fight against opioid addiction. Ben has given over $2 million to police and fire departments around the country, including giving out 269 K-9s. Roethlisberger’s Foundation awarded grants in 2008 to every Steelers city’s fire department and police department.
Roethlisberger not only gave money to fire departments but also expressed a desire to support police and fire department. Since then, he’s provided numerous grants to law enforcement agencies across the United States. One of his most recent grants will be given to the Avon Police Department, and the Indiana State Police Alliance. Both departments have supported their K-9 programs for many years. The Ben Roethlisberger Foundation money will be used to purchase training equipment, and to add another K-9 unit to their existing unit.
The Steelers quarterback’s generosity was matched with the wish of a young boy. Roethlisberger’s donation of $30000 was matching his personal contributions to Make-A-Wish. In addition to giving money to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Ben also gave a $600 check to a young boy named Anthony Cook. Cook, who is a fan Roethlisberger’s, was able get his wish granted. This included a trip at Disney World.
Roethlisberger’s foundation has left a lasting legacy to law enforcement. The foundation has provided funding for more than $2 million in grants for police and fire departments. It also helped to buy and train two K-9s to their police department. This has resulted in the annual seizure and recovery of more than $100,000 worth of illegal drugs. It’s an amazing gift for a police force.
Gives K-9 units
When he was a boy in Findlay, Ohio, Ben Roethlisberger met a police dog named Flip, a 5-year-old Belgian Malinois. Flip was shot after wandering into a K-9 officer’s property. Roethlisberger made a wish to help police dogs in the area and donated $6,800 to a foundation dedicated to giving these animals a chance to save lives. Ben’s wish was fulfilled when his foundation assisted CCSO to train Pito. This week, he met Officer George Hurst. Pito alerted Officer George Hurst about marijuana and cash found in the car of the driver during a traffic stop.
Since the start of the Ben Roethlisberger Foundation, the organization has awarded grants to dozens of police departments and K-9 units across the country. In addition to the Steelers, the Foundation has also given grants to Kansas police departments and Bonner Springs police department. The foundation’s grants have helped a variety of police departments in the state and is now expanding to include the Kansas City area.
Throughout his career, Ben Roethlisberger has supported law enforcement and given millions to the fight against drugs and other crimes. Since 2007, the Ben Roethlisberger Foundation has donated over $2 million to local police and fire departments across the country. The Foundation has granted grants to more than 269 K-9 units since 2007 and hosted many events that have helped it distribute its funds.
This Thanksgiving, the South Euclid Police Department can celebrate. The Ben Roethlisberger Foundation’s Giving Back Fund has awarded a grant to the department to help Officer Chris Albert learn to use his new K-9 Argo. The money will be used to replace the police department’s aging K-9 Hero and also allow the officer to become certified in training dogs from other agencies.
Buys a new dog for officer Phil Lerza
A Pittsburgh Police Department K-9 named Rocco was stabbed during the arrest of a violent sex offender on March 3, 2014. Luckily, the wound was not life-threatening but the officer succumbed to his injuries. Officer Phil Lerza and K-9 Rocco received a hero’s funeral, with over a thousand law enforcement personnel attending. The attacker was convicted and given a seventeen-to-fourty-year prison sentence.
Pittsburgh Police Chief Joe Mock has revealed that Ben Roethlisberger is making a wish come true by buying a new police K-9. The NFL quarterback has established the Ben Roethlisberger Foundation to help police departments across the country acquire K-9 dogs. The foundation has already acquired several dogs across the country, including for officer Phil Lerza.
