Besides the numerous appearances in the community by our players, players also invest time and effort into the community of their own volition.
Pro Bowl wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald’s impact on the Arizona community was evident again this past year as he participated at various community events and appearances while also supporting the Carol Fitzgerald Memorial fund in honor of his late mother who passed away in 2003 as a result of breast cancer.
The fund helps support causes that his mother held close to her heart, such as the education of urban youth on HIV/AIDS and breast cancer issues.
In 2004 Fitzgerald also established the “Larry Fitzgerald First Down Fund” to support children and their families. The Larry Fitzgerald First Down Fund has given money for computer equipment, vision care, and other activities to support youth.
