Earl Campbell and Son Tyler Make Contribution to MS Scholarship Fund
NFL Hall of Famer and UT Heisman Trophy Winner, Earl Campbell and his son Tyler, who was diagnosed with MS in 2007, have made great strides in 2012 raising money and awareness to support the National Scholarship Program for families directly impacted by MS.
In September, the Campbell family donated $60,000 to support National MS Society scholarship recipients from across the South Central Region and United States. The Society established its scholarship program in 2003 and the program continues to grow both in terms of support and scholarships awarded. In its first year of operation the program awarded 36 scholarships for a total of $68,000; in 2012 over $1 million was awarded to 646 scholars. Enrollment for the 2013 Scholarship Program is open between October 1, 2012 and January 15, 2013 online at nationalMSsociety.org/scholarship.
The money was raised through the Campbell Project for MS. The Unstoppable Earl Campbell tribute limited edition art, personally signed by Earl Campbell, is raising funds in honor of his son Tyler through the Pro Player Foundation in partnership with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
