The Andy Roddick Foundation hosted a breakfast conversation on the importance of giving on Monday, March 9th at the new Austin JW Marriott. Special guest Super Bowl Winning Coach Tony Dungy, retired NFL coach, author, and philanthropist, will led the discussion around the importance of giving. Andy Roddick will also be part of the conversation.
Dungy has been a long time friend and supporter of the Andy Roddick Foundation, and he himself is a model for giving back and getting involved.
Dungy is involved in a wide variety of charitable organizations, including the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Athletes in Action, Mentors for Life, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boys & Girls Clubs, the Prison Crusade Ministry, and All Pro Dad. He also works with Basket of Hope, the Black Coaches Association National Convention, Indiana Black Expo, the United Way of Central Indiana, and the American Diabetes Association.
Aside from his deep nonprofit and foundation involvement, Dungy, of course, is well known as the former NFL coach of the Indianapolis Colts, where he led them to a Super Bowl victory in 2007, the first such win for an African American coach. Currently Dungy serves as a studio analyst on the number one Primetime show in America Sunday Night Football on NBC. Dungy is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Quiet Strength and Uncommon, coached many teams in his professional career, and played in the NFL for several years himself.
This event is one of several that will occur in this special milestone 15th year for the Andy Roddick Foundation, all to help support its mission to expand opportunities for young people to learn, thrive, and succeed.
