Six-time Pro Bowl fullback and former Tampa Bay Buccaneer Mike Alstott and his wife Nicole began the Mike Alstott Family Foundation in 2007.
Their mission is “to uplift the minds, hearts and spirits of families and children.”
They did just that Thursday afteroon at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg.
The Alstott Foundation held a “muffins for mom” event that allowed sick children to take part in arts and crafts with their mothers before the holiday on Sunday.
The Alstott’s have been doing this event for “11 or 12 years now,” according to Alstott.
He said told us the smiles he gets to see on the faces of these young kids keeps him coming back year after year.
