Thank you to everybody who attended and contributed to the success of the 41st Ed Block Courage Award Gala!  We had over 940 people in attendance as well as players from 27 NFL teams represented at the Gala itself. The players all had a wonderful time interacting with each other and most importantly were wonderful with all of the kids!

During their stay in Baltimore, the courage award recipients and their families spent time with children at the Baltimore City Recreation and Parks Community Outreach as well as our Baltimore Ravens Courage House, St. Vincent’s Villa.  There, the players were treated to breakfast, performances, and special hand made medallions by the children.  The players and kids then had a blast as they talked, played, and signed autographs!



On February 15th, the Los Angles Rams held a “Play 60” event at A Place Called Home to formally announce the dedication of the facility as their official Courage House, becoming the 27th member of the National Courage House Support Network for Kids. A Place Called Home offers many services to the youth of South Central, Los Angles, including schooling and tutoring, behavioral counseling, music and arts program, college scholarship and job placement, among many other amenities.

The event included members of the Los Angles Rams community Relations department, team mascot Rampage, Athletic Trainer Reggie Scott and members of the local government, including the Mayor’s office. The Ed Block Courage Award Foundation’s Director of Operations, Brett Dickinson, was on hand to present the team and facility with commemorative plaques of the occasion. The Rams matched the Foundation’s $10,000 donation, to jump start their relationship, as they build their imprint  on the Los Angles community.

During the event, the children were given the opportunity to join in special activities, to promote physical activity, including football drills and games, along with a bounce house donated by the team. Members from the Rams were also given a tour of the facilities to see first hand the impressive work done year round to help those in need.
