Wesley Woodyard was not only a terrific player at Kentucky, but he was also a terrific individual.
That’s why it really is no surprise that he is still giving back to others even though he’s now a linebacker for the Tennessee Titans.
The 16 Ways Foundation Charity Golf Tournament (Changing Lives One Putt at a Time) will be May 23 at 11 a.m. at the University Club of Kentucky. Woodyard is the co-founder and chairman of the organization.
Here is what the proceeds from the golf scramble will help: “16Ways Foundation is a non-profit organization under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The Foundation will work on a national level to develop and implement workshops, seminars, camps, and other activities. These are designed to build self-esteem, promote responsibility for one’s own actions and overcoming obstacle’s, and demonstrate the importance of academics, knowledge of career options and professional development, community involvement, and mental and physical fitness among youth of all socio-economic backgrounds. The foundation’s primary focus is to work with at-risk youth between the ages of 8 and 18 and a secondary focus on adults in employment transition.”
Woodyard will be on WLAP 630AM (wlap.com) with us today at 9:30 a.m. to talk about his fund-raising event. Foursome team slots remain open for this private event that includes lunch and a dinner event with silent auction after the golf.
