The NFL star hopes to raise awareness about and funds for his Prime Time Association, which seeks to train kids to become the world's next great leaders. "Our goal is to raise the help we need to continue providing TRUTH kids from Dallas, Atlanta, Memphis, and Little Rock the support important to their development through sports, education and mentoring. Our weekend continues to grow and our vision is brought to life by Atlanta’s very talented Tee Foxx and Foxx Entertainment Group and Celebrity Publicist Ayana Young. It grows bigger and bigger every year," explains the star.
