COMMUNITY

Mike wasted no time in getting involved in the WNY community in his first year as a Bill. He began as an active participant in the Buffalo Bills Toyota Rookie Club in 2011. Currently in its 10th season, the Rookie Club allows the newest Bills players to get involved in and learn more about the WNY community. As part of his involvement in the Rookie Club, Mike contributed to the Hometown Huddle – a nutrition program where kids learned how to eat healthy and participated in football-related drills. He also volunteered at the Northwest Buffalo Community Center Thanksgiving and the 2011 Holiday Party, and helped unveil the new Youth Zone at the Mississauga, Ont. YMCA as part of the Bills’ Toronto Outreach.

From there, Mike went on to participate in a number of other events around town, including fielding phone calls and appearing on the Variety Kids Telethon to support Women’s and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo.

During the holidays, Mike helped support teammate Bryan Scott’s caroling effort at Children and Family Services in Buffalo. Mike later continued in his musical service with “Cover the Earth” – the vocal authority tour from his alma mater, Bethel University – at Bethesda World Harvest International Church on Main Street in Buffalo in May.

Mike and several of his teammates made an appearance at the Buffalo Bills and American Red Cross blood drive at Ralph Wilson Stadium to sign autographs and take pictures with fans. The most recent drive on June 13, 2012 brought in a record-breaking 523 units – shattering the old record by 122 units.

Mike was one of the many Buffalo Bills participants in the NFL’s first-ever Play 60 Ultimate Field Day for kids ages 12 and under. The Ultimate Field Day allowed children the opportunity to run football drills with their favorite Bills players in Ralph Wilson Stadium on the very same field where the Bills play their games. Children had the opportunity to get their picture taken in front of the charging buffalo logo at midfield and get autographs from Bills players, as well.

Mike demonstrated his commitment to the WNY youth when he made an appearance in January at Buffalo Public School #17. While he was there, Mike specifically addressed the issue of bullying and encouraged those in attendance to remember the importance of being good to one another. Mike went on to read a book to the kindergarten class and concluded the program by sharing a Buffalo Bills cake, posing for pictures and signing autographs.

Earlier this year, Mike visited the Health Sciences Charter School in Buffalo to discuss the importance of staying active and living a healthy lifestyle. Mike spoke to the students and their families about his own experience with nutrition and shared in a pot luck-themed dinner with everyone in attendance.

Mike later teamed up with Tops Friendly Markets at an event in March at Eggert Elementary in Orchard Park. Again, Mike stressed the importance of eating healthy and making smart food choices.
