Two amazing non-profit groups, The Houston Texans Foundation and the Methodist DeBakey Heart Center, are assisting with the event. Heart disease is a leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States and former professional athletes can find themselves at an increased risk once they retire from a life of vigorous training. Research is vital to understanding, preventing and treating this disease. That's why the Houston Texans Foundation and the Methodist DeBakey Heart Center are proud to join forces with us and help raise awareness.
Proceeds from this event will benefit cardiac research at the Methodist DeBakey Heart Center, one of the most experienced and comprehensive cardiac centers in the United States. Together, we are offering the millions of people who suffer from heart disease the hope that they will live longer and healthier lives. Several of the athletes attending the dinner will also benefit from a healthy heart screening at the heart center during their stay in Houston.
