About The Ed Block Courage Award Foundation


The Ed Block Courage Award Foundation, Inc. is dedicated to raising awareness and prevention for abused, neglected, and at risk children.

The cooperative efforts of the Foundation, the NFL, the NFL Players Association, the NFL Alumni Association, NFL Films, the Professional Football Athletic Trainers Society and the Pro Football Hall of Fame have enabled the dream to grow.

Today, the Ed Block Courage Awards event is heralded as one of the most prestigious in the NFL, and the Foundation has expanded its scope, recognition, and charitable efforts to a highly visible national level. Another of Sam’s dreams, the creation of a national network through dedication of Courage Houses in NFL cities, is also well under way. On a nation-wide basis, the Foundation has formulated a Courage House National Support Network for Kids through the dedication of Courage Houses in 25 NFL cities. The Foundation also sponsors the Baltimore Sports Media Hall of Fame Award and the Professional Football Athletic Training Staff of the Year Award.
