NFL 2020 Draft: ‘Draft-A-Thon a chance to give something back’ says Goodell

Share This Post

The NFL Draft-A-Thon is a ‘good way to give something back’ says the NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell.

This week, during the NFL 2020 draft, fans will be able to stream the Draft-A-Thon which, in an attempt to raise funds for healthcare workers and COVID-19 relief, will star a host of famous faces.

Hosted by Rich Eisen and Deion Sanders, the Draft-A-Thon will feature a wide variety of athletes, celebrities, and personalities.

They include actor and comedian Kevin Hart, music artists Quavo and Kane Brown, football player Toni Harris, gaming icon Ninja, NFL stars Tyrann Mathieu, Devin McCourty, Torrey Smith, Rod Woodson and many others.

“We know what is going on in our country,” Goodell said on The Rich Eisen Show. “We’re a part of those communities. We want to give back.

“What it’s going to do is really give people a chance to participate and give back in their own way for whatever amount that they can to be able to contribute to relief efforts from some great organisations – six national organisations – that will be getting 100 per cent of the funds.

“That’s real important for us to support the work that they’re doing. And this is an opportunity for everyone to be able to enjoy an NFL event but also be able to make sure that it’s going to a really great cause.”

Fans can make donations here and the funds raised by the Draft-A-Thon will go directly to six national non-profit organisations.

They are: American Red Cross, CDC Foundation’s All of Us: Combat Coronavirus Campaign, Feeding America, Meals on Wheels America, Salvation Army and United Way.

“We hope to be able to do much better than that over the next few weeks and to be able to do something that is going to provide really needed resources for people on the front line and that have been impacted by this,” Goodell said.

“We think we can bring a lot of attention and a lot of thanks and gratitude to the people on the front line but also much needed resources.”
