Russell shares his story to help kids

Posted by Teresa Varley on April 4, 2013 – 11:37 am

Former Steelers’ linebacker Andy Russell is the latest to be added to Insightful Player, a movement of hope that features inspiring stories from NFL players in an effort to inspire today’s youth.

“Andy Russell was selected to be an Insightful Player because of his awe-inspiring leadership and tremendous philanthropic works, which are shining examples for our nation’s youth to follow,” said Chrissy Carew, founder of Insightful Player.

Russell oversees the Andy Russell Charitable Foundation which focuses on children’s charities, with funds from his annual golf outing benefiting many of those charities through the years, including the Ronald McDonald House, Children’s Hospital Free Care Fund and Juvenile Diabetes.

“I am very proud and blessed to have become a participant in the Insightful Player,” said Russell. “The Steelers’ owners, the Rooney family, always stressed to us that it is extremely important to give back to the community, to help people in need and to do our best to teach what our journey has taught us to the young people in our city. The Insightful Player team has a strong group of players who I’m sure have been inspirational to the youngsters who read their motivational writings and I hope to contribute also to educate, inspire and drive as many young people as possible.”
