The Christopher Foltz & Company team is excited to announce becoming a marketing partner of the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund. CFCo will be collaborating with the GGAF board of directors on the advertising, marketing and public relations facets of the esteemed Northbrook, IL based NFL assistance organization. CFCo will also work closely with the expansion and development of the overall national organization, as well as its globally recognized medical program. The expansion of Gridiron Greats will allow them to continue providing the hands on assistance and financial aid they’ve been offering for the past five years, but on an extensive, national level.
As the Chairman of the Board for the GGAF, Mike Ditka says the organization’s mission is to assist retired NFL players in dire need of medical services for a variety of reasons, including inadequate disability coverage and pension benefits. “Our mission has been and will continue to be to help those former players and their families going through difficult times. The need is great. We welcome Chris and Christopher Foltz & Company to our marketing partners team and vision.” In recent times, many of the NFL players who helped shape the league and make the game into what it is today are suffering physically, emotionally and mentally. This is where Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund steps up and helps out players by providing them with one time and/or on-going services, as well as offering financial aid. “Our entire Christopher Foltz & Company team is proud to be working with Coach and the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund. We look forward to joining forces and making these services more widely available across the United States so that all retired NFL players in need get the help and assistance they deserve,” said Chris Foltz
