Ben Roethlisberger Appears at Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids Pro Camp

PITTSBURGH, PA. — Steelers quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, along with teammate, Brett Keisel, appeared at the Steelers’ practice facility on Feb. 7, 2015, for an event sponsored by Garth Brooks and his wife Trisha Yearwood’s Teammates for Kids youth sports camp where one hundred kids from the local Boys and Girls Club had their football fantasies fulfilled when they got to toss the pigskin with the Super Bowl champs.

“This is the greatest accomplishment I’ve ever gotten to be a part of. And you truly are a teammate, said Brooks” Trish Yearwood reiterated.”I think for these kids, it teaches you a sense of community…It teaches you a sense of responsibility, how to be a team, how to get along with others …”
Since its inception in 1999 by Bo Mitchell and Garth Brooks, the Teammates for Kids Foundation has raised over $80 million to help children in over 60 countries around the globe. The idea behind the cause was to take sports statistics and convert those statistics into money benefiting children in need. Starting with baseball players, the foundation has grown to include over 3,000 professional athletes from baseball, hockey, football, soccer, basketball, racing, golf, and even pro rodeo! All funds go straight to the kids.
