Philly recognizes DeSean Jackson’s foundation for ’10/10/10′ day
Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson received a resolution from the city of Philadelphia, recognizing him for the work of the DeSean Jackson Foundat10n in raising awareness about pancreatic cancer and working to find a cure.
The resolution is timed to the foundation’s plans for “10/10/10 Day,” an effort to inform 10 people of 10 awareness facts and to donate $10 to the DeSean Jackson Foundat10n on Oct. 10, 2010.
Jackson’s father, Bill, died from pancreatic cancer.
“DeSean Jackson is a phenomenal athlete; however pancreatic cancer is not a game,” Councilman Curtis Jones Jr. said in a statement. “The foundation was founded to provide relief to families and to spread awareness, especially in the African-American community, of this silent killer. It is my privilege to acknowledge the good work of our Philadelphia Eagle, on and off the field.”
Our sincere thanks to the Honorable Councilman Curtis Jones.
