Rockland Community Foundation Fundholder Nominated for Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award
NFL Star, Devin McCourty has been nominated to receive the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award! He has chosen Chromebooks for Kids, the RCF fund he started with his brother Jason, to be the recipient of the award. The Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award recognizes an NFL player for his excellence on and off the field. The award was established in 1070 and was renamed in 1999 after the late Hall of Fame Chicago Bears running back, Walter Payton. Each team nominates one player who has had a significant positive impact on his community. This fund has already granted over 400 Chromebooks to students in the East Ramapo and Nyack School Districts. His nomination means a donation of $40,000 to the fund. If Devin wins, Chromebooks for kids will receive an additional donation of $250,000.
