2014 Training Camp
July 18, 2014
Training Camp is here! It has been a great offseason but I know I speak for everyone when I say we are excited to start the 2014 football season!
On a personal note, Brittany and I were able to spend a ton of time with the boys this summer. With Baylen 5, Bowen 3, and Callen 1, there is never a dull moment! In fact, each day is usually filled with shear craziness. With the older two, one minute it is Buzz Lightyear and Woody costumes and I'm being chased around as Zurg, or we dress up in military uniforms and fight the bad guys. With Callen, it is cars, trucks, trains and balls. And if Daddy ever goes to the ground it immediately turns to wrestle time! We are due with baby #4 in late August, a little girl, and Brittany and I could not be more excited. She has 3 older brothers chomping at the bit to see her too.
The Brees Dream Foundation had a big offseason as well. We were able to distribute $1.5M around Super Bowl 47 in New York in February through the Super Service Challenge, benefitting organizations all over the country but especially ones helping with Hurricane Sandy Recovery in the NY/NJ areas. Also, we had our biggest year yet with the Amazing Race in May. Kenny Chesney rocked as usual in a rare acoustic performance at the House of Blues and in partnership with Matthew McConaughey and his JK Livin Foundation we were able to raise over $800K for the New Orleans community. We are looking to continue to grow this event and make it our feature event every year in May in New Orleans. Also, we look forward to sharing our new website design coming soon!
Also, be on the lookout, Nine Brand is releasing this year's T-shirt very soon for the upcoming football season. I think the Who Dat Nation will love it! We are building in some very cool sweepstakes around it as well so get ready!
See you soon!
