Last Friday Justin Fields made a special appearance at Dunkin's 20th Annual Cop on a Rooftop fundraiser in Northbrook, donating $10,000 to the Special Olympics.
It was the first donation the Bears quarterback made via the Justin Fields Foundation, a non-profit he has created to help young people. Fields attended the event with his mother, Gina, and father, Pablo, who is a retired Atlanta police sergeant.
"The foundation really came from just trying to help the community, trying to strengthen the community in all areas," Fields told Fox32 Chicago. "I really just wanted to do that through grants in areas of youth empowerment, leadership development, scholastic achievement and health and wellness. [This is] the first opportunity we got and we're definitely excited for it, so it's an awesome opportunity for sure."
