Last Friday, Justin Fields, the talented quarterback of the Chicago Bears, participated in Dunkin's 20th Annual Cop on a Rooftop fundraiser in Northbrook. During the event, Fields generously donated $10,000 to the Special Olympics, marking the inaugural contribution made by the newly established Justin Fields Foundation.

The Justin Fields Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by the Bears' quarterback, aims to support and uplift young people. Attending the fundraiser alongside his mother, Gina, and his father, Pablo, a retired Atlanta police sergeant, Fields expressed his passion for strengthening communities and making a positive impact.

"The foundation's core purpose is to empower the community in various aspects," Fields shared with Fox32 Chicago. "Our focus is on providing grants for youth empowerment, leadership development, scholastic achievement, and promoting health and wellness. This opportunity to contribute to the Special Olympics is truly remarkable, and we are thrilled to be a part of it."

Fields' commitment to making a difference extends beyond his performances on the football field. Through the Justin Fields Foundation, he endeavors to create lasting change and provide support where it is needed most. By dedicating his time and resources to causes like the Special Olympics, Fields serves as an inspiring role model for aspiring young athletes and community leaders.


The impact of Fields' generous donation will undoubtedly benefit the Special Olympics and contribute to the development of young athletes with intellectual disabilities. As Fields continues to make strides on and off the field, his dedication to philanthropy and community involvement shines brightly, exemplifying the spirit of compassion and giving back.

With each act of kindness, Justin Fields demonstrates that his commitment to making a positive impact goes far beyond the realm of sports. The heartfelt donation to the Special Olympics is just the beginning of what promises to be a remarkable journey of philanthropy and community upliftment through the Justin Fields Foundation.
