Curtis Martin Donates Time and Money to Good Cause; Woody Chips in Too

Curtis Martin Donates Time and Money to Good Cause; Woody Chips in Too

Yesterday Curtis Martin held an autograph session to raise money for the families who suffered from Hurricane Sandy last year.

Invited by ESPN Insider and Kennedy Graduate Adam Schefter, Martin donated $10,000 of his own money to get the fundraising started. New York Jets’ Owner Woody Johnson followed suit by donating $5,000 as well. via Patch

I think Curtis Martin is the man.  He’s always been someone I’ve always looked up to and it’s weird to think someone who is almost exactly my age can be a role model for me.  He lead by example on the field and he continues to do great work off it.  Even though Curtis fell short of his $50,000.00 goal, somehow I get the feeling he’s not throwing in the towel.
