ResorTime Helps Raise $5,000 for the ProPlayer Foundation
to Benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society
Player Foundation partner and NFL Legend, Earl Campbell, and his son Tyler
Campbell’s inspiring journey continues to bring hope to college students
diagnosed with MS each year at Flavors of Austin, an annual event
to raise money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s scholarship
fund. Tyler was diagnosed with MS during his 2007 college football season
at San Diego State University, sidelining his NFL aspirations, but in spite
of his diagnosis he graduated with a BA in Business Administration. Both
Earl and Tyler teamed up with the Pro Player Foundation to raise funds
for tuition and treatment for students with MS, alleviating the stressful
impact MS can have and allowing students to focus on their education and
“Not only does the scholarship provide a sense of monetary relief towards my education, but it also demonstrates that the NMSS encourages those who are affected by MS to pursue educational aspirations. This encouragement shows that we are not limited by, nor controlled by MS. Personally, this support helps me overcome my fears that are induced by living with MS.” Anisha, Pro Player Foundation scholarship recipient.
ResorTime has a longstanding partnership with the Pro Player Foundation and raised funds through an innovative social media campaign garnering Earl Campbell’s 140K followers to help raise awareness for the cause. ResorTime donated $5 for every person who showed their support. ResorTime was thrilled to present Pro Player Foundation with a $1,500 check at the Flavors of Austin event on March 4th, 2017.
“We’re proud to count athletes such as Earl and Tyler Campbell as friends and partners in our social responsibility efforts and the opportunity to make a positive impact in the lives of young people living with MS,” said Renee Wagner, RRP, and Director of Creative Services for ResorTime. “Our core purpose is ‘Enriching Lives by Creating Experiences Worth Sharing.’ There are few experiences more enriching than helping students who thought higher education was out of reach due to MS.”
