Super Bowl Week Kick Initiative with over 100 NFL Legends Announced

TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Mike Ditka's Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund (GGAF) today announced an unprecedented humanitarian initiative to assist retired NFL Players in dire need while simultaneously supporting U.S. Military Special Operations personnel and their families through the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. The organizations announced the partnership today and unveiled a Gridiron Greats Super Bowl week initiative at a press conference featuring several NFL greats, including NFL Hall-of-Famers Mike Ditka, Gale Sayers, Jack Youngblood and Jim Kiick, as well as Colonel John T. Carney Jr., (Ret) of the United States Air Force.

The groundbreaking partnership between Gridiron Greats and the Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF) will raise awareness and funds for the less fortunate members of both their communities: NFL pioneers and recently retired NFL players who have financial and medical needs that are not being provided for by the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) and the NFL; and the children of Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps special operations personnel who lost a parent in combat or training.

The partnership will launch during a series of Gridiron Greats events in Tampa during Super Bowl week January 28-31, 2009 that will bring together an unprecedented group of over 100 NFL legends. This will be the largest humanitarian project to date to assist retired players. Some of the NFL Greats who will participate include: Mike Ditka, Gale Sayers, Marv Levy, Daryl Johnston, Jack Youngblood, Michael Irvin, Ron Jaworski, Mike Golic, Larry Little, Vinnie Testaverde, Paul Hornung, Jim Kiick, Jim McMahon, Tony Dorsett, Eric Dickerson, Keyshawn Johnson and many others.

Mike Ditka also announced that the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Tampa has partnered with the Gridiron Greats and will be the headquarters for the
