Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Matt Spaeth, fullback Will Johnson and wide receiver C.J. Goodwin were all in Grafton, WV Saturday afternoon taking part in an event at Toothman Ford to raise money for McKenzie Flohr, a Taylor County girl who is fighting leukemia.
Dealership owner J.R. Toothman reportedly spearheaded the event and solicited the support of the Steelers players.
“I just thought it would be a great idea, and he did too, if we could use our platform and kind of help raise some money for the family. It’s all for a great cause, so we’re happy and excited to be here,” said Johnson.
WBOY-TV was on hand for the event and filed the story that you can view below.
It’s encouraging to see these players get noticed for their work in the community and happens much more often than you think.
