To Inspire Our Youth To Develop Life Skills of Sportsmanship, Character, and Teamwork. That’s the mission of Saint’s Offensive Tackle Terron Armstead and his Foundation, the Terron Armstead Foundation.
For the second year now, Armstead’s Foundation surprised a group of New Orleans kids with tickets to the Saint’s pre-season game against the Miami Dolphins. The kids got to sit in the 100 gate of the dome, giving them a heightened experience of getting to watch the Saints. Additionally, the group received a Saints shirt, Terron Armstead player card, and a Saints sticker.
The overall vision of the Foundation is to reach across all the borders to teach, guide, and develop people with a common goal – to make a difference; by becoming the difference we want to see in the world.
Outside of inspiring and surprising kids within the New Orleans community with a Saints game experience, the Foundation also hosts a variety of other events like sports camps, and even basketball programs. Armstead has built a dream team with the passion to inspire, including Saints players Mark Ingram and Brandon Coleman.
At the end of the day, it’s about giving back, especially to the youth in our community. The youth is the future, and sometimes they need to hear that. What the Foundation has been able to do, and continues to do, will empower kids in the community for years to come.
