For this reason cornerback Jason McCourty of the NFL’s Tennessee Titans has pledged with Fit Fathers to continue steering his family towards proper health and nutrition. “Becoming a Fit Father has completely changed my life, everything I do I know my little princess will be watching,” McCourty states. “Staying fit and eating healthy will allow me to watch her grow into a beautiful, strong woman. It’s important to develop the habits “now” of a healthy lifestyle that will impact my entire family for decades to come.”

Jason and Devin McCourty were football standouts at Rutgers before moving onto the NFL where they are both currently starting defensive backs. Devin is a safety and team captain for the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots while Jason is a cornerback and team captain for the Tennessee Titans. The twins were both recently recognized for their work on and off the field as they were both named “Walter Payton Man of the Year” by their respective NFL teams. “We have seen first hand the devastating effects of sickle cell on family members and we are choosing to use our platform to help families in similar situations,” said Jason. “This is something very personal to us and we’re thrilled to continue working with Embrace Kids Foundation,” added Devin.
Their work in the field of chronic disease awareness continues on Saturday, June 20, 2015, where the McCourty twins will be hosting the 3rd Annual Tackle Sickle Cell 5K Run/Walk in Liberty State Park in Jersey City, NJ. This event is the major fundraising component of the Tackle Sickle Cell Campaign. The Run/Walk is for all ages and will be followed by a celebration including music, food and fun at the park. Jason and Devin McCourty will be joined on this day by fellow members of the NFL and Rutgers football community.
So remember, eat clean, stay active and continuously energize your life!
