NFL Characters Unite
Jamaal Charles
NFL Characters Unite, NFL stars share deeply personal stories of facing hardships in their lives and mentor young people in their communities who are currently struggling to fit in, deal with bullying and overcome adversity. Players featured in this year's initiative include Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles, Philadelphia Eagles running back Darren Sproles, Buffalo Bills defensive end Mario Williams, and 2014 Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl champion cornerback Richard Sherman and Coach Pete Carroll. Through meaningful conversations and unique one-on-one confidence building activities coordinated through local YMCAs, the players encourage the kids they meet to find the character, strength, and courage to persevere and pursue their own dreams.
