On Friday Nov. 4, retired Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner attended the M&M bowl following the morning pep rally’s $1,250 donation for Gridiron Heroes.
Gridiron Heroes, a nonprofit organization created by Eddie Carnales (who made an appearance at the pep rally Friday morning), provides support for high school players who have survived spinal cord injuries. To help out, Madison and Macarthur’s student councils sold towels, and both sold out.
“Gridiron Heroes is an amazing that has great intentions,” junior students council member Daniel Oh said. “I’m glad to be a part of student council because we had the chance to raise so much money for such a great cause.”
Warner, a spokesperson for Gridiron Heroes, brought with him some advice.
“It doesn’t matter if it’s football or not,” Warner said. ” Do what you are great at and excel at it.”
