This Fall, FOX Sports has teamed with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to help kids who are sidelined by cancer and other deadly diseases. FOX Sports Supports, the network’s charitable initiative now in its third year, is a program that raises awareness, provides financial assistance and spurs volunteerism for health charities selected by FOX Sports employees.
“We are honored to partner with a tremendous organization like St. Jude for the 2010 NFL on FOX season,” said Bill Wanger, executive VP, FOX Sports.
“Using our unmatched on-air talent, brand and reach, our goal is to raise awareness for St. Jude so they can continue to fight for all the courageous children and families affected by this terrible disease.”
Earlier, NFL on FOX on-air personalities Troy Aikman, Terry Bradshaw, Joe Buck, Jay Glazer, Jimmy Johnson, Howie Long, Curt Menefee, Pam Oliver and Michael Strahan visited St. Jude.
The group learned first-hand about the hospital’s research, treatments and patient care, and filmed a series of public service announcements that will air throughout the entire football season including Super Bowl Sunday.
In addition, FOX Sports will support St. Jude through numerous on-air mentions all season long and will also be involved in St. Jude events and activities.
Football fans can visit www.stjude.org/foxsports. The site features exclusive behind the scenes footage from the talent’s visit to St. Jude, patient stories, photos and ways for the public to support the Hospital’s mission.
FOX Sports is the flagship network of the FOX Sports Media Group.
