My earliest memory of Warrick Dunn is him running all over Miami while at Florida State.
That is also the first time I heard about Dunn’s mother a police officer who was murdered in the line of duty. From that point on I rooted for Dunn to succeed and he didn’t disappoint.
He had a very good NFL career, while also doing work in the community not because he wanted the attention, but because he is passionate about helping people.
He took some time out to speak to BSO about the Crown Royal Heroes Project that will be taking place this Sunday at Cowboys Stadium.
Here are the details if you are in the Dallas area and would like to contribute.
On the field Sunday night, the Giants and Cowboys will be battling it out for a win on the gridiron. But before they take the field, Rodney Atkins, Warrick Dunn and Crown Royal are asking Dallas locals to come out to the East Plaza at Cowboys Stadium to help honor our nation’s heroes.
Before the game on Sunday, December 11, Crown Royal, Atkins and Dunn will provide adult consumers (21 and over) the opportunity to support the military by stuffing special care packages to be sent to Dallas servicemen and women serving overseas this holiday season.
For every bag stuffed, Crown Royal will donate $10 to The Texas Wildfire Relief Fund, a non-profit organizationcommitted to generating awareness and garnering support for Texas volunteer firefighters.
The event is part of the Crown Royal Heroes Project—an on-going commitment from the whisky brand to recognize, honor and give back to America’s finest, including police officers, fire fighters, military personnel and more.
At the bag-stuffing event, country music artist Rodney Atkins will be performing a special FREE concert to honor Dallas heroes—fans are encouraged to stop by and help stuff a care package—then enjoy the live performance!
