TURLEY STEPS UP HIS GAME
A great story…
Kyle Turley, a nine year veteran of the NFL and active member of the Kansas City Chiefs, is coordinating this effort with active NFL players to help retired players in dire need through the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund. The Gridiron Greats was formed last year for retired NFL players with serious medical and financial problems.
At a press conference Tuesday, hosted by Mike Ditka and Gale Sayers of the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund, Turley announced that he would be donating his entire game check from the December 23rd game to the Gridiron Greats, and that he is spearheading a grass roots relief effort among the NFL’s active players to directly help retired players in dire need.
Many active players will donate part or all of their entire game check, from their December 23rd game to be used to provide immediate assistance to retired NFL players in need. One hundred percent of all the funds donated will go directly to retired players
Turley is joined by many players around the league who have already committed to participate in this humanitarian initiative. Players can elect to keep their donation and participation confidential or release their name publicly as a participant in the effort.
