London Fletcher supports
the Heather Trew Foundation
London Fletcher, the former linebacker of the Washington Redskins, appears in public service spots in Washington, DC and South Carolina, encouraging individuals to sign up as organ, eye and tissue donors.
“Anyone can choose to be a champion,” says London. “Let’s be real. You don’t need them when you’re gone, but others do.”
Fletcher volunteered to appear in the PSAs after meeting Judy Trew, director of The Heather Trew Foundation and hearing her daughter Heather's story.
"He is a remarkable, caring
individual as well as an amazing athlete"
“We are so thrilled and honored to have London Fletcher as a voice of the Foundation,” said Mrs. Trew. “He is a remarkable, caring individual as well as an amazing athlete. His tenacity on the field is matched only by his unwavering commitment to the community.”
Fletcher, the former Redskins captain and a future hall of famer, has made at least 100 tackles in 13 consecutive seasons. The Ohio native signed with the Redskins in 2007.
