Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver, Cyril Grayson, is no stranger to the level of sacrifice and commitment it takes to be the elite athlete that he has become. He knows that being a professional athlete pales in comparison to the sacrifice and commitment that our military servicemen and women and their families give to our country, including time away from their families, intense training and situations they encounter while serving our country. It takes its toll both mentally and physically, and not only on the military members, but their families as well. When they come home, a lot of our warriors face a new battle. Many have a hard time adjusting; they don’t know how to manage or deal with their experienced trauma or how it affects their families. As a family man himself, Cyril knows how important it is to have the right support for our service members and their families.
In an effort to raise awareness for our country’s heroes, Cyril Grayson has recently partnered with Hope For The Warriors , a non-profit organization that knows that it takes more than a village to help our country’s warriors and their families. Hope For The Warriors focuses their efforts on helping our military men and women transition back into their civilian lives through programs that address their mental, physical, financial, and transitional wellness, and makes sure that all their needs are met. They provide warriors with programs including Warrior’s Wish, which grants life-changing wishes to severely injured service members, and Warrior’s Compass, a program that provides service members, their spouses, and vets with resources to help start new careers and find job opportunities. Their Outdoor Adventures program provides adaptive opportunities for wounded heroes to participate in sporting activities in the great outdoors, while their Health & Wellness programs help both warriors and their families with their wellness transition.
“I think that Veterans deserve all the support in the world after all that they have done to protect our country, “ Cyril stated. “I hope that my involvement actively shows the appreciation I have for all of our military men and women. Thank you for your service.”
Hope For The Warriors is only able to offer these programs through the generous support of donors like you and me. Cyril hopes to use his influence to garner more support for our warriors by promoting fundraising efforts, making appearances at their various events, and most importantly, being an advocate to raise awareness for the needs of our military service members and their families.
