May 4, 2019:
125 Lil’ Pups entered the field through a tunnel of 50 professional, college and high school football players and a standing ovation welcoming them to a day designed just for them.
The Buffalo Bills organization really stepped up, with Harrison Phillips driving the goal of letting the kids shine and giving them a day to remember. The Playmakers worked with the Special Olympics, Bornhava – a Down Syndrome Organization, and with Buffalo Inner City Youth Football to bring young football fans out to run offensive drills, play tug-of-war and race relays with volunteers from The Buffalo Bills football team and local High School Football Player Volunteers from Alden Central High, Cheektowaga Central High and Akron High School. The NY State Police and Windom Fire Department was also in attendance providing demonstrations and answering questions from the kids about their careers.
We are proud to be partnered with these organizations in Buffalo:
Thank you to the Buffalo Bills team members and the volunteers who paid-it-forward on their day off and made this an extra-special day for the kids.
Playmakers made the news in Buffalo!
