When I spend time with the kids at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health, I can’t help but be inspired.

Many kids look up to athletes and celebrities as role models, but my Colts teammates and I know that these courageous kids are the true heroes. Through my involvement as a volunteer and donor to Riley Hospital’s school program, and my health advocacy role in Riley at IU Health’s Change the Play program, I’ve gotten to see how much these children benefit from our community’s support.

For the second year in a row, I am honored to serve as the Giving Ambassador as Riley launches its holiday season giving campaign, The Gift of Hope Happens Here. This year, we have some exciting, new opportunities for Riley supporters on Giving Tuesday, which is December 1. If you visit our special website RileyKids.org/GivingTuesday on that day, you will have the chance to participate in live Q & A’s with me as well as celebrities and community VIPs.     

If you choose to make a gift to Riley before December 31, every dollar you give will be matched by our partner, French Lick Resort, up to $150,000! Your help supports the world-class care, groundbreaking pediatric research and comforting family support programs that every Riley family deserves.

Please join our mission. Make a donation and show the world why you support Riley by using the #GiveHope hashtag on social media. These incredible kids deserve to be at the top of our gift list this holiday season. Let’s make hope happen here!
