They will share stories about their challenges and accomplishments both on and off the football field, their views on complex issues related to teams of all kinds, as well as their thoughts on the impact of philanthropy and volunteerism on a community's health. Proceeds from the event will benefit United Way of Central Ohio's Community Impact Fund.
