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!!
