Nick Lowery is a 30+ year sports philanthropy hero. In the 1980's, his “Kick with Nick” for Cerebral Palsy program was the NFL's longest player fundraising program ever. It served as a catalyst and model across the NFL and all pro sports for other player programs. Nick received both the U.S. Jaycees Ten Outstanding Young Americans Award and the foremost Humanitarian award for NFL Players, the Justice Byron White Award. In 1996, he brought Johns Hopkins University and the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) together to found Native Vision, a Sports/Lifeskills program for 1000 Native American Youth from 40 tribes each year that thrives today. Nick helped launch both the Points of Light & AmeriCorps as a member of the White House staff. Today he unites athletes of all ages to combat bullying, feed the homeless, and conduct leadership for all diverse youth, plus fitness programs across the country. Truly, no athlete has done more both nationally and locally more consistently with long lasting programs that all still thrive today. Watch the Imagine video and others take in the color, passion and impact of these programs, then get everyone to vote every day until May 1st to put Nick the Kick on top!
