Victor Green & Friends

In light of all the negative press and recent world events weighing heavy on our minds and hearts, I wanted to share something positive;  a reminder that there is stilll so much good out there and still so many outstanding people who really do make a difference in our world.  Former New York Jet Victor Green is one of those individuals. He created an exciting day for 13 under-privileged children that would likely have never had an experience like this.  This is what Beyond The Laces is all about!  Thank you, Victor!!
