The Good Guys Part 2

At the end of last year I wrote a post about some of the good things that some athletes have done. This was amid a lot of bad press for sports with athletes getting arrested and doing other unlawful things. In that post I mentioned some athletes and the good things they have done, and today I would like to write about a couple more.

Jalen Rose- Jalen Rose recently donated 1 million dollars to Dikembe Mutombo to help build a hospital in Africa.

Curt Schilling- Curt Schilling has helped raise funds to find a cure for ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). If you would like more information about how to help you can check out Schilling's blog at www.38pitches.com.

I will hopefully post about the good guys in sports every once in a while, because these are the athletes that we should look up to. These are the men that our children should say that they want to be like, not only because they are famous athletes but because they are good people as well.
