On October 13th, Pittsburgh Steelers’ Super Bowl Quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, presented the Cape Coral Police Department with a check from the The Ben Roethlisberger Foundation in the amount of $9,974.
The Cape Coral Police Department will use this grant to build a new obedience obstacle course to assist with the training of its K-9 Unit.
This marks the 10th season that the Ben Roethlisberger Foundation has distributed grants to K-9 units. The mission of the Ben Roethlisberger Foundation is to support K-9 units of police and fire departments throughout the United States, with a particular emphasis on support for service dogs in Pittsburgh, PA. Roethlisberger and the Foundation also support Make-A-Wish.
Fans of The Ben Roethlisberger Foundation can support future K-9 grants by joining Ben’s crowdfunding campaign on https://pledgeit.org/big-ben. Big Ben is pledging $1,000 per touchdown this season to his foundation. Supporters can increase the impact by pledging to donate any amount per touchdown.
