(CNS NEWS) On Monday, NFL star J.J. Watt launched a new Reebok “Valor” shoe to honor veterans like his late grandfather – and says he will donate all of his personal proceeds to a veterans’ organization that takes veterans to visit the Nation’s Capital.
Watt, a defensive end for the Houston Texans, made the announcement in a Twitter post:
“All of my proceeds go to the Honor Flight which takes war veterans on a trip to D.C. to visit the monuments and brings them back home to a proper Welcome Home.”
