COMMUNITY
    Ryan was one of several Bills players in attendance with their families at the second annual lighting of Niagara Falls on October 7th. Bills players were on hand to sign autographs and greet fans before the falls were lit pink to raise awareness for the fight against breast cancer. Ryan, his wife Liza, and their children were at the event – part of the 6th Annual Billieve Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign.
    The Fitzpatrick family also assisted two area families in need during the holidays, helping to rebuild their homes after losing everything in separate fires last year. With the help of a generous donation from the United Way of Buffalo and Erie County, Ryan and his family provided toys for the children, computers, furniture and more. The Fitzpatricks had the opportunity to meet the families they were helping and personally deliver some of the gifts during a private meeting at the American Red Cross Administrative Headquarters.
    Ryan 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.
    Ryan continued his support throughout the holiday season by assisting in Co-Strength and Conditioning Coach John Gamble’s holiday programming. Multiple Bills players assisted the events by donating time and money to ensure area families could properly enjoy the holidays.
    Ryan also supported the Teammates For Kids Foundation this year by attending their annual dinner held in November.  Ryan, along with his other teammates, has supported the cause which was co-founded by Garth Brooks and Bo Mitchell six years ago.
