Ka'imi Fairbairn gave back to his home state of Hawaii, providing 600-plus meals to healthcare workers. The Kailua native partnered with Daniel Young and Young's Fish Market for the 50/50 Real Hero Challenge.
"When Daniel Young approached me with this opportunity I thought it was an awesome idea," Fairbairn said. "The idea was to provide meals for frontline workers who are putting themselves and their families at risk everyday. I wanted to find some small way to support those who have been giving so much of themselves to this crisis."
The Texans fifth-year kicker was married in Oahu in February and is currently participating in the team's virtual offseason program. Despite playing in Houston, Fairbairn has family in Hawaii and wanted to give back to the Straub Medical Center in Hawaii during the COVID-19 pandemic.
"I chose to donate to Straub Medical Center in Hawaii because my grandparents have been patients there multiple times over the past few years and their staff has been really great to my family," Fairbairn said.
Fairbairn signed an extension with the Texans on March 10. Last season, he connected on 20-of-25 field-goal attempts and 35-of-40 extra-point attempts to score 100 points. The Texans also re-signed long snapper Jon Weeks and punter Bryan Anger to contract extensions, effectively keeping the kicking unit together for the 2020 season.
"I'm really excited that we have our unit back," Fairbairn said. "We have built a great foundation together and we are looking to grow from that. Trust is one of the biggest parts of our position and I have that with both Jon and Bryan and even beyond that with (special teams) Coach (Brad) Seely and Tracy (Smith) as well as the rest of the special teams units."
