What's the future of punter Brian Moorman foundation?
Despite being released by the Buffalo Bills, longtime punter Brian Moorman says the organization he and his wife started to help children with cancer will carry on.
After more than 11 seasons with the Bills, Moorman may have moved on, but says he's committed to keeping the PUNT Foundation he and his wife Amber started in 2004 in Western New York. The foundation helps families with children going through pediatric cancer.
Trustee Peter Harvey says the PUNT Foundation offers a number of programs including Adopt-A-Family and Brian's Game Day, which hosts families in a private suite during Bills home games.
"For a lot of these kids it's the only chance they'll get to see a game in a safe environment, in a clean environment, for the kids.", said Harvey.
Harvey has known Moorman since moving to Buffalo six years ago after his young daughter was diagnosed in Florida with brain cancer.
Harvey says Moorman has always "amazing" and continues to have strong leadership with his locally based administration and board.
"His legacy will continue here, and I [can see him making] frequent trips in the offseason to see these kids and their families, without a doubt," said Harvey.
PUNT Foundation partners include Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Camp Good Days and Special Times, and Women and Children's Hospital.
